This chemical was present in the Bhopal Accident.

It has a significant vapour pressure at ambient temperature.

I'm sure that fixed point and portable gas detectors could be effective. There are many types.

Not sure if there is a simple puffer bottle solution that could be directed at leaking plant equipment to find the exact place of a leak.

Since MIC is flammable, an LEL detector can be a possibility.

Infrared gas detector could also be possible.
