Abstract
Solvent desorption was shown to be an excellent technique for the quantitative recovery of soman and mustard from minitubes packed with a variety of solid adsorbents. A good correlation was established between the results obtained at DRES and the published data from other countries. Solvent desorption was applied to the analysis of a water sample, which contained hydrolysis products of mustard. This approach resulted in the identification of seven compounds. Two of these, thiodiglycol and bis((2-hydroxyethylthio)ethyl)ether, comprised a large percentage of the sample and were not detected by hexane extraction.
