The unseen menace

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


In the war against terrorism, ion mobilities which can provide the earliest indication of the presence of chemical warfare agents are discussed. Chemical warfare (cw) agents high vapour pressure means they evaporate freely and are hard to contain. Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) based techniques have again proved crucial in countering the cw threat through rapid detection and identification before the levels of concentration become high.
