Abstract:

The handheld Raman spectrometer for point detection of chemicals developed by Ahura Corporation was tested using toxic industrial chemicals TICs. This report reflects extended capabilities of TRI Report 200601131. The device was assessed for its capacity to detect and identity liquid and solid substancesmixtures through sealed glass containers clear and amber in a completely non-contact non-destructive manner. The following TICs were tested acetone, acetone cyanohydrin, acrolein, acrylonitrile, allyl alcohol, benzene, carbon disulfide, carbon tetrachloride, chloropicrin, dimethyl sulfate, dimethylamine, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, formaldehyde, gasoline, kerosene, lindane, M-cresol, methyl hydrazine, nitric acid, parazylene, phenol, phosphorus trichloride, phosphoryl trichloride, potassium cyanide, propylene oxide methyloxirane, sodium cyanide, sulfuric acid, tetrahydrofuran THF, toluene, toluene 2,4-diisocyanate, xylene, and hydrazine.
