Abstract:

Some liquid chromatographic LC methods have been developed for the determination of explosives and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons PAH in deactivation furnace ash. The explosives are extracted with acetonitrile and filtered through a 0.45 micron filter prior to analysis. The PAHs are extracted with methylene chloride in a soxhlet extraction apparatus and purified with a silica gelsolid phase extraction column.
