Application Note: Detection of Chemical Warfare Agents by Transportable GC/MS
3 June 2014

In this work, rapid gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is described for chemical warfare agent compounds having a wide volatility range. Use of a Low Thermal Mass (LTM) resistively-heated GC column module in place of the typical air bath oven provides for a compact, transportable analytical system capable of rapidly separating a mixture.
