The primary objective of this project was to fulfill the requirements of SON ERSON-17-02 by developing new methods of extraction, pre-concentration, and analytical separationquantitation of 17 legacy and seven IM compounds, daughter products of IM, and other munition compounds absent from USEPA Method 8330B, to yield a single standardized method for simultaneous analysis in environmental matrices, leading to cost savings with minimal increase in environmental monitoring and no change to existing sample collection procedures.
