Abstract : The Bioflo reactor and the respirometer are used to carry out degradation experiments for various environmental pollutants present in propellants as well as degradation of energetic materials. The HPLC, and GC/MS, Capillary Electrophoresis, and the LC/Ms/Ms are used for quantification and identification of Dinitrotoluene, Nitroglycerin, Diphenylamine, Nitroglycerine and their intermediates. The purchased equipment are utilized in various phases of the projects described below. In particular, these instruments are used for propellant components, intermediate biodegradation products, and enzymes.
