see description

Description:

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 chloralkyl phosphates in a water sample taken from the effluent of a plant that manufactures fire-retardant chemicals. f the 13 phosphates identified, only four 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. everal 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.
