Abstract:

Compound 34 is an indicator used in the M19 Chemical, Biological, and Radiological sampling and analyzing kit for detecting G agents. For the past 25 yr, numerous discrepancies have existed in both the chemical name and the chemical structure of this compound. Using one and two dimensional NMR techniques together with mass spectrometry MS and derivatization and degradation of the actual material, the structure of Compound 34 was determined unambiguously. In addition, thin layer chromatography TLC and 1H NMR were used to determine the purity of the U.S. Army Chemical Research, Development and Engineering Center Sample.
