Abstract

A system has been developed for the automated analysis of organic explosive residues by high-performance liquid chromatography with a pendant mercury drop electrode detector (HPLC-PMDE). Previously it was only possible to deoxygenate samples manually, prior to HPLC-PMDE analysis. Using a programmable autoinjector and a universal switching-valve with on-line nitrogen, this process has been automated. The automated system has been successfully applied to the routine analysis of casework samples.
