The report gives results of a project to determine if a proposed catalytic exchange procedure could be adapted to produce the labeled analog materials necessary for isotope dilution gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) analysis. It is related to a general evaluation of the potential utility of isotope dilution GC/MS in chemical analysis related to incineration of hazardous waste materials. The proposed deuterium exchange technique is described, along with experiments designed to test its applicability. Results of the experiments show that the technique can be applied successfully to certain limited classes of hazardous waste materials, but they do not indicate sufficient versatility to meet the most general needs of hazardous waste incineration programs.
