Explosives by HPLC, LC/MS and LC/MS/MS

Explosives By HPLC, LC/MS and LC/MS/MS

Tuesday, August 2, 2016 - 1:30 P.M. EDT

About this webinar:

In 1994, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) published Method 8330, “Nitroaromatics and Nitamines by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Method 8321, “Solvent-Extractable Nonvolatile Compounds by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography/Thermospray/Mass Spectrometry (HPLC/TS/MS).  In addition, the US EPA published revisions of both methods in 2007.  Environmental labs routinely use the HPLC and LC/MS technologies in the analysis of explosives.  Additionally, the LC/MS/MS technology is applied to the ultra-trace detection of these compounds.

In this presentation, we will discuss the analysis of explosives by HPLC, LC/MS and LC/MS/MS.

Topics the presentation will cover:

  • Historical Overview
  • Primary Explosives
  • Insensitive Munitions
  • Chemistry and Structures
  • Analytical Methodologies - strengths and challenges
  • HPLC, LC/MS, LC/MS/MS - strengths and challenges
  • Misc. explosives and alternative technologies

Who should attend?

  • Consultanting and Engineering firms
  • Environmental Professionals currently working on sites with explosives concerns
  • Environmental Professionals looking for more knowledge about explosives

A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation. At the conclusion of each webinar, you will be asked for your feedback and opinions for future webinar topics to be developed by TestAmerica.
