Abstract:

A task was initiated to develop a screening protocol to determine the effectiveness of candidate liquid decontaminant materials when compared to a single component of the standard liquid decontaminant materials when compared to a single component of the standard liquid decontaminant currently fielded by the U. S. Army. The protocol was designed to eliminate those candidates that were not as good as the most effective component of the M258A1 field kit in decontaminating rabbits exposed percutaneously to mustard or Lewisite. Materials as good as or better than the single-component M258A1 standard pass to the next tier for further testing.
