30 ppm hydrogen sulfide, 300 ppm ammonia, 40 ppm sulfur dioxide, 20 ppm nitrogen dioxide and 1,000 ppm hydrogen chloride do not affect the indication. Hydrogen sulfide causes the pre-layer to discolor to dark brown. Ammonia concentrations above 300 ppm can cause the indication at the beginning of the indicating layer to discolor back to yellow. Acylonitrile up to a concentration of 1,000 ppm does not affect the indication. It is impossible to measure hydrocyanic acid in the presence of phosphine.
