The chlorine attack may have come out of the blue for the soldiers on the ground, but the idea of chemical warfare was not new to military strategists. Poisonous weapons had been used on and off for millennia: They were deployed in ancient Greece; the Chinese used them against Genghis Khan; and indigenous people in South America had long used.

Chemical warfare agents A. Chlorine gas 1. Clinical signs. Chlorine gas is very irritating, or in concentrated amounts, even corrosive. The United States’ long history relating to chemical warfare stretches back to before World War I.

Once chemical warfare was a battlefield reality, to protect our Military Forces on the battlefield and to ensure they had the capabilities needed to defeat our nation’s adversaries, the United States developed several research and development facilities, chemical and filling plants, proving.

In what many consider to be the dawn of modern chemical warfare, chlorine was first employed as a "choking agent" in the early days of World War I.

On Apduring the second battle of Ypres, the German military released approximately metric tons of chlorine from 5, buried gas cylinders.[8]. Chlorine gas was used as a chemical warfare agent during World War I (Withers and Lees,Haber,Salem et al., ).

During the early years of the war, both the Germans and the Allies used irritant gases as chemical weapons. By earlyFritz Haber, a German chemist, proposed using chlorine as a chemical weapon.

Chemical warfare agents are classified in different categories depending on their effect. We have the blistering agent such as mustard agent that is designed to induce blisters wherever it falls. It goes on micro droplets and it makes a chemical reaction with the skin or the moisture we have in the lungs, and the effect is a blister.

Chemical warfare (CW) involves using the toxic properties of chemical substances as type of warfare is distinct from nuclear warfare, biological warfare and radiological warfare, which together make up CBRN, the military acronym for nuclear, biological, and chemical (warfare or weapons), all of which are considered "weapons of mass destruction" (WMDs).

As you may have read, usage of Chlorine as a chemical weapon was confirmed recently in the report of the UN Joint Investigative Mechanism. You will also have seen further unconfirmed press reports this week of civilian casualties from the use of chlorine barrel bombs in Aleppo.

Chlorine gas represents a hazardous material threat from industrial accidents and as a terrorist weapon. This review will summarize recent events involving chlorine disasters and its use by terrorists, discuss pre-hospital considerations and suggest strategies for the initial management for acute chlorine exposure events.

Chlorine is used in the manufacture of many products, as a bleaching compound for residential and commercial use, and as a biocide for municipal water and waste treatment (i.e., purifying and disinfecting water, detinning and dezincing iron) (Budavari ).

It also was used as chemical-warfare agent in World War I (Withers and Lees ). viii. TABLES (Cont.) Mixed Rail and Highway Shipment Profile Data for Gases. 13 Chemical Warfare Agents Listed in the ERG of Initial Isolation and.
