MULTISPECTRAL IDENTIFICATION OF ALKYL AND CHLOROALKYL PHOSPHATES FROM AN INDUSTRIAL EFFLUENT
Thruston, Jr., A., S. Richardson, J. McGuire, T.W. Collette, AND C. Trusty. MULTISPECTRAL IDENTIFICATION OF ALKYL AND CHLOROALKYL PHOSPHATES FROM AN INDUSTRIAL EFFLUENT. AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR MASS SPECTROMETRY. Elsevier Science Ltd, New York, NY, 2(5):419-426, (1991).
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.
