Abstract:

The authors investigated development of aerosol spray systems for the detection of traces of explosives on envelopes, packages and personnel. Several reagent systems were screened using spot techniques on filter paper, and the most promising of these packaged in aerosol cans for preliminary field tests. The reagents are useful for detecting aromatic nitro explosives and aliphatic nitrate esters in the microgram range.
