Abstract
Thiodiglycol and a number of other compounds were detected during gas chromatographic analysis of aqueous samples obtained from near the site of the former DRES mustard hydrolysate vaults. Hexane extracts of the aqueous samples were analysed by capillary column gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) under both electron impact and chemical ionization conditions. Interpretation of the MS and complementary capillary column GC-fourier transform infrared data led to the characterization and identification of many compounds, including ether/thioether macrocycles and vinyl alcohol compounds, not previously associated with mustard decomposition.
