Abstract
Twenty-nine samples, reported to be taken during an inspection of a "Schedule 3" chemical industry, were received by Defence Research Establishment Suffield as part of a United Nations sponsored international round robin analytical exercise designed to evaluate laboratory capabilities. This report summarizes Canada's contribution to the round robin analytical verification exercise. Part I provides the results of the chromatographic analyses (GC-MS, GC-FTIR, GC-FID and GC-FPD) and Part II provides the results of NMR analysis and synthesis of authentic standards. Canada confirmed Dichlorvos production and identified more than 20 compounds in the samples, including a group of previously unreported dioctyl methylphosphonates, which would be scheduled under the proposed Chemical Weapons Convention.
