Abstract:

This bibliography resulted from an up-to-date review of the literature through March 1976 on oil spill identification. It includes some of the latest state-of-the-art techniques, e.g. low temperature luminescence, field ionization mass spectrometry, double-beam fluorescence and simultaneous high resolution dual detection gas chromatography. It includes 96 references, some of which are themselves review articles that will provide interested readers with more leading references as well as the names of current researchers in the field of oil identification. Two major sources of non-refereed papers are included because they present the very latest technology. They are 1 the Abstracts of the annual Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy designated Pitts. Conf. and 2 the biannual proceedings of the joint Conference on Prevention and Control of Oil Pollution designated as Joint Conf. sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Coast Guard and the American Petroleum Institute which publishes the proceedings. For convenience, papers dealing with a single analytical technique have been placed together.
