DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator:
John L. Lombardi, President
Abstract:
Decontamination of hardware exposed to chemical agents remains to be a significant problem. Past approaches using hypochlorites, DS2, M11 & M280 systems have been effective but unfortunately at the expense of degrading & corroding painted surfaces, metals and elastomers. This proposed program will… More

Self-Decontaminating Barrier Material Incorporating Catalytically Reactive Membranes for Individual and Collective Protection on a Chemically/Biologic
