Abstract : The invention is directed to a method of detecting aldehydes and halogenated compounds of aliphatic hydrocarbons, aldehydes, silanes or phosphates in their vapor state. The object is the colorimetric detection of alpha-haloaldehydes without interference. It is now possible to detect alpha-haloaldehydes of trichloroacetic aldehyde or dichloroacetaldehyde in the presence of a detector amine selected from the group consisting of aliphatic, aromatic and heterocyclic amines.
