Army creates ultra-strength decontaminants – UPI.com

May 1

U.S. chemists and military scientists say they have created a group of ultra-strength cleaners designed for use in the aftermath of a terrorist attack.

The researchers led by George Wagner at the Army’s Edgewood Chemical Biological Center in Maryland said the cleaners are tough enough to neutralize nerve gas, mustard gas, radioactive isotopes and anthrax. But Wagner said the cleaners are also non-toxic, based on ingredients found in foods, cosmetics and other consumer products.
