Abstract
Sample preparation and identification techniques for chemical warfare agents were surveyed as part of Canada's contribution to a joint NATO project to update the NATO AEP-10 Handbook. Sample preparation techniques such as solid phase extraction, supercritical fluid extraction and derivatization were reviewed with respect to their applicability to chemical warfare agents. Identification techniques including; gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy were examined in light of the need to confirm the identification of a chemical warfare agent in the presence of simple to complex background matrices.
