OIL SPILL IDENTIFICATION WITH MICROENCAPSULATED COMPOUNDS SUITABLE FOR ELECTRON CAPTURE

A technique involving the microencapsulation of high-vapor-pressure compounds suitable for electron capture detection is proposed for the rapid, unambiguous identification of oil slicks. Experimental diffusion studies indicate that the tracer will remain within the microcapsules during the lifetime of an oil slick. Small-scale field studies were conducted with 30-micron diam. microcapsules containing Freon 113.
