Abstract:

This report describes investigations of reactive materials suitable for incorporation in or on fabrics for protection from percutaneous chemical warfare agents. Microencapsulated forms of alkali metal hydroxides and aliphatic amines were prepared and are currently being evaluated as reactive materials for the deactivation of chemical agents. Preliminary results indicate that agent simulants can be effectively neutralized by the encapsulated materials.
