Abstract : The patent describes a system for detection of electrophile compounds used as intermediates or pesticides by forming volatile derivatives of said compounds by treatment with N-alkylformamides producing isocyanide ions which contact an inert support medium. Treating said medium and its contents with a detector agent for said ions thus produces the color detector signal for said ions. The advantage of the system lies in the minimum amount of handling of the sample.
