Arsenic agents are another type of chemical warfare agent that can cause significant harm to human health. Exposure to arsenic agents can result in symptoms ranging from irritation to death. As with other chemical warfare agents, it is essential for law enforcement agencies and military personnel to have the knowledge and tools necessary to detect and prevent exposure to arsenic agents.
High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) is a reliable and widely used analytical technique for the identification of arsenic agents. HPTLC separates the individual components of a mixture, making it possible to identify specific arsenic agents based on their characteristic retention factor (RF) values. In this case study, we have transferred the initial TLC method to HPTLC for the detection of three arsenic agents L, DA and DM.
