Rapid trace detection of triacetone triperoxide (TATP) by complexation reactions during desorption electrospray ionization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) mass spectrometry is used for rapid, specific and sensitive detection of trace amounts of the notorious explosive TATP present on ambient surfaces by alkali metal complexation in a simple spray technique.
