Abstract
A rapid, sensitive gas chromatographic procedure for the analysis of mustard gas collected from air in hydrocarbon solvents has been developed to replace the 4-(4'-nitro- benzyl)pyridine method. Decalin is used as the solvent for collection of the mustard and the latter is measured on an F & M Model 5750 apparatus equipped with a column packed with 2% FFAP on Chromosorb W. Sample injections can be made every 2 min, the method has an accuracy of ~2% in the concentration range I-8g mustard/ml and is capable of detecting as little as 0.2 ng of mustard in a Il injection.
