Abstract
The mustard stored at the Defence Research Establishment Suffield was disposed of by hydrolysis during the 1970's. Samples of the liquid and sludge hydrolysate were analysed by gas chromatography with flame ionizaton and mass spectral detection. Hydrolysis was essentially complete since only trace levels of mustard were detected. Thiodiglycol, a hydrolysis product of mustard, was found as a major component in the hydrolysate. A number of other compounds were identified (or tentatively identified) in both the liquid and sludge hydrolysate samples.
