Paper Abstract

An inexpensive, rapid and sensitive method for the field pre-concentration and subsequent analysis of high explosive residues from solid debris samples and from aqueous samples has been evaluated using solid-phase microextraction. Explosives studied included nitrobenzene, 2-nitrotoluene, 3- nitrotoluene, 4-nitrotoluene, 2,6-dinitrotoluene, 1,3- dinitrobenzene, 2,4-dinitrotoluene, trinitrotoluene, 1,3,5- trinitrobenzene, 4-amino-2,6-dinitrotoluene, 2-amino-4,6- dinitrotolene and tetryl.
