Abstract : The determination of mustard gas (2,2'-dichlorodiethyl sulfide) and some related vesicants in rubber and paint was investigated. The vesicants were isolated by extraction with methylene chloride or by dynamic headspace analysis at elevated temperatures. The latter procedure had the advantage that high boiling additives did not interfere during the analysis by capillary column gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The stability of the vesicants in the materials used proved to be good. No great losses were found after storage for weeks at room temperature....
