Chemical Weapons Convention Chemicals Analysis: Sample Collection, Preparation and Analytical Methods (0470847565) cover image
Describes the procedures for collection of samples, sample preparation, and analysis of CWC-related chemicals. It deals with analytical procedures that can be followed in well-equipped off-site laboratories (designated laboratories), as well as the on-site analytical procedures that the OPCW inspectors use in sample collection and preliminary analysis of the samples in field conditions.
  • A one-of-a-kind, highly topical handbook for every expert in the chemical weapons field
  • Outlines the methods for analysing chemical weapons both on and off site
  • Authored by international experts in the field from top laboratories in both government and academic institutions
