Comparison of Mobile Laboratory screening method for the detection of high explosives with EPA SW 846 method 8330

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The current EPA SW-846 method for High Explosives (HE) analysis is not well suited to on-site analytical work. The method in general is too complex and time dependent to function well in a quick turn around mode. The Mobile Chemical Analytical Laboratory project at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has used a modified analytical method to generate quick turn around data to address Department of Transportation (DOT) shipping requirements, and with appropriate modifications to the QA/QC oversight of the method is well suited to deliver high quality quantitative data.
