A human serum sample collected from a victim of the Osaka VX incident was analyzed according to our developed technique for metabolites of VX. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in full-scan electron impact and chemical ionization modes were used, and, for more reliable confirmation, GC-MS-MS was also employed. In the serum sample, both ethyl methylphosphonic acid and 2-(diisopropylamino-ethyl)methyl sulfide were detected. These results indicated that the techniques using GC-MS and GC… CONTINUE READING
