Pagination or Media Count:
A new rapid, specific, and unique polarographic method of analysis for 1,2-propyleneglycoldinitrate PGDN in effluent water is described. A portable and inexpensive digital polarograph and monitoring system, built at NWC, are presented for the field analysis of PGDN in an effluent water obtained from a Navy carbon column cleanup process to remove the explosive from Otto Fuel wastewater. Data obtained by the NWC-developed method of analysis and field equipment compare favorably with data obtained by a vapor-phase chromatographic method on the same samples of effluent water. Part 2 of this report describes in detail the digital polarograph, circuitry, and operational characteristics of the complete polarographic monitoring system.
