The effect of ambient temperature and humidity on the ionization efficiency of explosive vapors (2,4-dinitrotoluene, 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, and pentaerythrite tetranitrate) under atmospheric pressure was studied. The optimal parameters and main analytical characteristics (sensitivity, detection limit, and dynamic range) of an ion drift nonlinearity spectrometer in the detection of these compounds were determined.
