A new method for extracting, enriching and identifying chemical warfare agents from oils and other organic liquids could help government officials and homeland security protect civilians more effectively from their deadly effects. The method, published in Journal of Chromatography A, uses nanoparticles to capture the chemicals.
Chemical warfare involves using the toxic properties of chemical substances as weapons. This type of warfare is distinct from nuclear warfare and biological warfare, which together make up NBC, the military initialism for Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (warfare or weapons).None of these fall under the term conventional weapons, which are primarily effective because of their destructive. Chemical warfare agents (CWAs) are defined as “any toxic chemical or its precursor that can cause death, injury, temporary incapacitation or sensory irritation through its chemical .
The systematic identification of effective drug combinations has been hindered by the unavailability of methods that can explore the large combinatorial search space of drug interactions. Here we present a multiplex screening method named MuSIC (M ultiplex S creening for I nteracting C ompounds), which expedites the comprehensive assessment of. Today, chemical warfare agents (CWAs) may pose a greater hazard to civilians than soldiers. The threat of chemical warfare is hardly novel. Traditionally used by armies to break a stalemate against relatively defenseless targets (those lacking masks, antidotes, and easy mobility), today, chemical warfare agents (CWAs) may pose a greater hazard to civilians than soldiers.

Chemical Warfare Agents, Second Edition has been totally revised since the successful first edition and expanded to about three times the length, with many new chapters and much more in-depth consideration of all the topics. The chapters have been written by distinguished international experts in various aspects of chemical warfare agents and edited by an experienced team to produce a clear.
Get this from a library. Identification of chemical warfare agents. [United States. Office of Civilian Defense. Medical Division,]. D. Hank Ellison's "Handbook of Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents, Second Edition" is a notable improvement on the successful first edition. This edition provides readily available access to data on more than the traditional "dirty 30" CWAs and now includes additional agents, precursors and decomposition by: Description.
Handbook of Toxicology of Chemical Warfare Agents, Second Edition covers every aspect of deadly toxic chemicals used in conflicts, warfare and terrorism. Including findings from experimental as well as clinical studies, this essential reference offers in-depth coverage of individual toxicants, target organ toxicity, major incidents, toxic effects in humans, animals and wildlife, biosensors and biomarkers, on-site and laboratory analytical methods, decontamination Book Edition: 2.
the systematic and extensive use of chemical warfare agents began during the World War I. The large number of casualties and the impressive psychological impact of these.
“A comprehensive overview of the development, future, and implications of biological and chemical weapons. Spiers’s book traces the origins of chemical and biological warfare from their ancient beginnings to the first major use of gas in in World War I, to more recent uses and suspicions of use.”, Arms ControlReviews: 2.

A computational methodology is introduced for detecting all unique series of analogs in large compound data sets, regardless of chemical relationships between analogs.
No prior knowledge of core structures or R-groups is required, which are automatically determined. The approach is based upon the generation of retrosynthetic matched molecular pairs and analog networks from which distinct.
The various post-translational modifications (PTMs) of plant proteins have important regulatory roles in development. We therefore examined various modified proteins from strawberry stigmata and found that succinylation of lysine residues was the most abundant type of modification.
We then subjected proteins from strawberry stigmata to an efficient enrichment method for succinylated. A chemical weapon agent (CWA) is a chemical substance whose toxic properties are used to kill, injure or incapacitate human beings.
About 70 different chemicals have been used or stockpiled as chemical weapon agents during the 20th century. These agents may be in liquid, gas or solid form.

Rapid identification of the chemical or biological agents involved in any hazardous material (Hazmat) incident is vital to the protection of first responders and emergency medical personnel at local medical facilities as well as to the effective treatment of casualties.
In his book, Compendium of Chemical Warfare Agents, author Steven L. Hoenig provides all the necessary information that First Responders, Hospitals, HazMat Teams, Fire and Rescue Services, and other First Responders need to know when dealing with dangerous chemical agents.
Coverage includes health effects, physical characteristics, hazards from reactivity, protection of personnel, and general. detection and identification of chemical warfare agents. This paper provides a general overview of chemical warfare agents and analytical methods for their analysis, a focused review on LC-MS applications, a summary of in-house LC-MS methods developed at DRDC.
the other toxic chemicals that could also be used as chemical warfare agents; a diagram to assist with the preliminary identification of which classes of chemical warfare agents a casualty may have been exposed to, based on the initial symptoms; and information on the long term consequences of exposure to v arious chemical warfare agents.
Temperature-programmed retention indices, relative to a homologous n-alkane series, were determined for twenty-two chemical warfare agents and simulants using fused-silica capillary columns coated with DB-1, DB-5, DB and DBWAX ucibility of retention indices, based on Van den Dool's equation, was excellent over the course of the study.
B. anthracis, a Gram-positive agent causative of anthrax, is naturally found in animals and in soil worldwide (Pilo and Frey, ). Due to its survival ability in both aerobic and anaerobic conditions, and its inherent ability to form heat-resistant spores, thus it is an ideal agent for biological warfare.

In eukaryotic cells, the mitochondrion is the key organelle for cellular respiration. Mitochondrial proteome analysis is difficult to perform by the classical proteomic approach involving two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2DE), because this organelle contains a large number of membrane-associated and highly alkaline proteins usually requiring specific treatments to be successfully analyzed.

() A wide range of useful links for information regarding chemical agents and the Chemical Warfare Convention.Chemical/biological warfare is the term used to describe the use of chemical or biological agents as weapons to injure or kill humans, livestock, or plants. Chemical weapons are devices that use chemicals to inflict death or injury; biological weapons use pathogens or organisms that cause disease.
