"Detection Technologies for Chemical Warfare Agents and Toxic Vapors discusses the principles, instrumentation, and context for applying several technologies to the detection of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and lethal chemical warfare agents (CWAs). It conveys techniques - some of which have been patented by the authors - developed for generating vapors and closely imitating potential environmental effects in a laboratory setting to test and evaluate hand-held, portable, and remote devices. This book provides a comprehensive list of TICs classified in forms of hazardousness as well as physical, chemical, and toxicological properties. Following a brief historical overview, the text also includes a review of federal defection requirements and the government's rationale for preparedness and response."--Jacket.
