H2S film strip recommendations

by Shannon | January 30, 2012 04:13 30 Jan 04:13 | #726 | #726

Recommendations from Alex Kolker (Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium):

  • Need to do a lit. review to identify if there are other substances that react with silver halide and could provide a false/positive
  • Run through a series of reactions- things with low pH or other salts
  • Send around to others to test in environments where there isn't H2S present
  • Testing in a glove box at Tulane over the course of a couple months
  • Can also test in Cocodrie at LUMCON facility in wetlands where H2S is naturally occuring (need to do this in hot months)
