Abstract:

The objective of the effort was to prepare the analytical technique and to assemble the necessary equipment. Several solvents were tested against the criteria of evaporation rate, separation from agent using gas chromatography, and rapid analysis time. Two solvents met the criteria and were selected for use in the system. All the samples of fabric have been obtained and prepared for testing. A means for disseminating the agents as monodispersed particles in the specified size and quantity has been set up the metal test cups for holding the fabric have been fabricated a controlled temperature and relative humidity chamber for performing the permeation tests has been built and an analytical technique for agent analysis using gas chromatography with a flame photometric detector has been developed.
