Abstract
VX and two VX related compounds, diethyl methylphosphonate and bis[2-(diisopropylamino)ethyl] disulfide, were confirmed at the 2 to 40 ug/g level as the principal components in three of four soil samples distributed by Finland as part of a multinational round robin exercise designed to evaluate laboratory methodologies. Several other compounds related to VX, were also identified in extracts of the soil samples.
