Abstract
THE USE OF DERIVATIZED POLYSTYRENE RESINS FOR ABSORPTION AND CHEMICAL NEUTRALIZATION OF CHEMICAL AGENTS IS PROPOSED. DERIVATIZED RESINS WILL BE SYNTHESIZED AND EVALUATED FOR THEIR ABILITY TO BOTH ABSORB AND TO CHEMICALLY NEUTRALIZE TOXIC CHEMICAL AGENTS SUCH AS SULFUR MUSTARDS AND ORGANOFLUOROPHOSPHATES. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT USE OF SUCH DERIVATIZED RESINS WILL YIELD IMPROVED DECONTAMINATION OF SENSITIVE EQUIPMENT, IMPROVED FILTERS IN RESPIRATORY APPARATUS AND IMPROVED PROTECTIVE CLOTHING FOR USE IN A CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT. COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF THIS TECHNOLOGY MAY PROVIDE IMPROVED PROTECTION FOR FACTORY WORKERS OR OTHERS WHO MAY BE AT RISK FOR EXPOSURE TO REACTIVE CHEMICAL AGENTS.
