Development of a Fluorescence Quenching Technique to Detect Permeation of Chemical Agent Simulants through Protective Clothing Materials

Volume 46, Number 4 (April 1992) Page 677-681

Vo-Dinh, T.; Pal, T.

This study involves the development of a new and simple analytical procedure based on a spectrochemical modification (SM) technique, namely fluorescence quenching (FQ) to monitor chemical agent simulants. The FQ technique is applied to evaluate permeation of these compounds through protective clothing materials.
