Detection Technologies for Chemical Warfare Agents and Toxic Vapors discusses the principles, instrumentation, and context for the detection of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and lethal chemical warfare agents (CWAs). This book includes physical, chemical, and toxic properties of CWAs and TICs; a review of federal detection requirements and the government's rationale for preparedness and response; methods of detection; and techniques developed for generating vapors in a laboratory for the testing and evaluation of detection devices. Its focus on detection methods and explanation of detection devices for CWAs and TICs make this text valuable for technical and emergency response personnel.
