Abstract:

We had already developed a sensitive infrared spectroscopy method for detecting monovalent anions in water when we were approached by the US Army, through Janet Jensen, to work with the Joint Service Agency Water Monitor JSAWM program with the specific goal of detecting CWA agents such as G-agent hydrolysis products and cyanide in water in real time and at concentrations approaching 1-10 ppb.
