Abstract:A nondestructive analytical method for peroxide-based explosives determination in solid samples is described. Reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography in combination with on-line Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) detection is used for the analysis of triacetonetriperoxide (TATP) and hexamethylenetriperoxide diamine (HMTD). In contrast to other liquid chromatographic methods with optical detection, no derivatization or decomposition of the peroxides is required. The peroxides are identified and quantified via their characteristic absorption spectra in the mid-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The detection limit of 0.5 mmol L-1 for HMTD and 1 mmol L-1 for TATP allows the identification of the explosives in complex matrixes
