    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes a procedure for the laboratory determination of the concentration of nitroaromatic and nitramine explosives in soil. The explosives involved in this test method are as follows: HMX (octahydro-1,3,5,7-tetranitro-1,3,5,7-tetrazocine), RDX (hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitrol-1,3,5-triazine), TNT (2,4,6-trinitrotoluene), TNB (1,3,5 trinitrobenzene), DNB (1,3 dinitrobenzene), tetryl (methyl-2,4,6-trinitrophenylnitramine), and 2,4-DNT (2,4-dinitrotoluene).

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

    This standard does not purport to address the safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
