Abstract
Sample preparation and identification techniques for chemical warfare and mid-spectrum agents were surveyed as part of Canada's contribution to a joint NATO project to create a NATO Handbook on the sampling and identification of biological and chemical agents. Sample preparation techniques such as solid phase extraction, supercritical fluid extraction and derivatization were reviewed with respect to their applicability to chemical warfare and mid-spectrum agents. Identification techniques including; gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy were examined in light of the need to confirm the identity of these agents in the presence of complex background matrices.
