Summary The book contains lectures of an international NATO-Russian Advanced Workshop about the detection of liquid explosives and flammable agents. The ARW was one of a series of workshops before, dealing with the detection of explosives and initiated by terrorist actions using liquid explosives. The aim of the workshop was to present and to discuss suitable methods about the feasibility and realization of the detection of liquid explosive charges and flammable agents
