Abstract Multispectral techniques (gas chromatography combined with low and high resolution electron-impact mass spectrometry, low and high resolution chemical ionization mass spectrometry, and Fourier transform infrared mass spectroscopy) were used to identify 13 alkyl and chloroalkyl phosphates in a water sample taken from the effluent of a plant that manufactures fire-retardant chemicals. Of the 13 phosphates identified, only 4 were located in library mass spectra data bases; thus, techniques other than conventional low resolution electron-impact mass spectrometry with data base matching were required. Several of the identified phosphates are commonly used fire retardants; however, three exhibited chemical structures different from those of the commercially manufactured fire retardants and the reactants used in their synthesis.
