Even after 80 years of World War I, there are hundreds of explosive contaminated sites, in the United States, and even a greater number in Europe and Asia. As human contact with explosives-contaminated soil and water could lead to severe diseases, it becomes really important to measure the contamination level of explosives in soil and water. In this technical paper, we present you the quantifiable response to multiple types of explosives simultaneously in a 10-30 second analysis. Extraction of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), 2,4-dinitrotoluene (2,4-DNT) and 2,6-dinitrotoluene (2,6-DNT) from soil and/or water were easily obtained in minutes allowing the system to operate under field conditions. The paper also details the sensitivity, accuracy, and precision of the SAW detector system.
