THE COMPOSITIONS USED IN THE DEVICE WILL UNDERGO CATALYTIC CHAIN REACTION TO PRODUCE HIGHLY COLORED COMPOSITIONS,WHEN EXPOSED TO THE TOXIC AGENTS. ASTHE AGENTS WOULD ACT AS CATALYST,THE YIELD OF THE HIGHLY COLORED COMPOSITIONS WILL BE VERY HIGH AND HENCE THE DEVICE IS EXPECTED TO BE VERY SENSITIVE. THE PROPOSED DEVICE WOULD DETECT THE AGENTS, AS WELL AS DETERMING THE TOTAL EXPOSURE (DOSIMETER) AND HENCE, CAN BE USED AT THE WAR FRONTS, PRODUCTION AND STORAGE FACILITIES AND IN THE HOSPITAL LABORATORIES AS AN EARLY WARNING SYSTEM TO PREVENT INJURIES AND DEATH.
