They are divided into two classes of G and V agents. Most of them are liquid at room temperature. NAs chemical structures and mechanisms of actions are similar to OP pesticides, but their toxicities are higher than these compounds.
Zotero Mendeley EndNote. However, use of toxic agents in wars and in attack started in the first ages of written history. The threat of chemical weapons reached to important extents in the last part of the 20th century and became a current issue in the mass destructions and terrorist events. Therefore, nowadays and generally in the 21st century, it should be accepted that the chemical weapons take their part along with the conventional weapons and they have become most possible warfare and attack methods. Knowledge is provided by education. The counterparts of equipment are personnel, appliance, devices, organization and coordination.
Note to reader: This fact sheet is intended to provide general awareness and education on specific chemical agents. For information on preparedness and response e. Nerve agents are chemicals that affect the nervous system. The health effects are similar to those produced by some pesticides. These agents are man-made and have been manufactured for use in chemical warfare. These agents are known to be present in military stockpiles of several nations, including the United States. Nerve agents do not occur naturally.
CWAs include five primary categories: nerve agents, asphyxiants, blistering agents, toxic industrial chemicals and blood agents. The French military used tear gas and acetone-based compounds for crowd control; chlorine gas was placed in capsules and released at the Battle of Ypres in , and was used as an alternative weapon after the German military exhausted materials for explosive weapons and began to investigate and use CWAs. Later, other agents such as phosgene and cyanide were considered for military use, because these chemicals had more toxic pulmonary effects. Nerve agents developed in the s and s were stockpiled during the Cold War. More recently, nerve agents have been used in the Iran—Iraq War in the s, the Japanese terrorist attacks by the Aum Shinrikyo cult in and attacks in Syria in The creation of the Chemical Weapons Ban in by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons stifled the development, use and stockpiling of these materials for military use across nations. Effective treatment of all patients exposed to CWAs requires use of appropriate personal protective equipment PPE and early patient decontamination by first responders.
Mustard agents are highly toxic and abundant warfare chemicals, primarily affecting ocular tissues, with no specific treatment antidote.

Chemical warfare agents CWAs are unarguably one of the most feared toxic substances produced by mankind. Their inception in conventional warfare can be traced as far back as the Middle Ages but their full breakthrough as central players in bellic conflicts was not realized until World War I. Since then, more modern CWAs along with efficient methods for their manufacture have emerged and violently shaped the way modern warfare and diplomatic relations are conducted. Owing to their mass destruction ability, counter methods to mitigate their impact appeared almost immediately on par with their development. These efforts have focused on their efficient destruction, development of medical countermeasures and their detection by modern analytical chemistry methods.
Человек, к которому он направил Росио. Странно, подумал он, что сегодня вечером уже второй человек интересуется этим немцем. - Мистер Густафсон? - не удержался от смешка Ролдан. - Ну. Я хорошо его знаю. Если вы принесете мне его паспорт, я позабочусь, чтобы он его получил. - Видите ли, я в центре города, без машины, - ответил голос.
Она уже готова была выскочить из комнаты, когда Стратмор наконец повернул рубильник и вырубил электропитание. В одно мгновение в шифровалке установилась полная тишина.
Насколько мне известно, ты сотрудник АНБ. - Ненадолго, - буркнул Хейл. - Не зарекайся.
Беккер понимал, что, по мнению бармена, ведет себя странно. - Quiere Vd. Algo? - настаивал бармен.
- Хейл хмыкнул. Он понимал: выбраться из шифровалки ему удастся, только если он пустит в ход все навыки поведения в конфликтных ситуациях, которые приобрел на военной службе. Стратмор придвинулся ближе, держа беретту в вытянутой руке прямо перед. - Как ты узнал про черный ход. - Я же сказал.
- Бринкерхофф рассеянно кивнул, стараясь не смотреть на лиф ее платья. - Когда знаменатель равняется нулю, - объясняла Мидж, - результат уходит в бесконечность.
