A method of analysis for nitroglycerine NG in soil and on the surfaces of mortar fins a common range scrap material was developed using a field-portable gas chromatograph system. The method combines quick and simple sample preparation procedures with a rapid gas chromatographic GC analysis using a thermionic ionization detector TID that is selective for compounds containing nitro NO2 functional groups. Very good agreement was observed among NG values established for splits of sample extracts by GC-TID and two accepted methods of analysis high-performance liquid chromatography and GC electron capture. The method detection limit MDL for NG in soil established by GC-TID analysis was 0.1 mgkg.
