The objective of this Phase I STTR proposal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a several highly porous silica-based solids in the presence of chemical challenges from chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). In Phase II, the most effective solids will be combined with a reactive polymer resin to make an adsorptive material that could be used in devices and textiles. In the event of a chemical challenge, a media coated with the reactive polymer will be used as the first line of defense to neutralize the chemical vapor by means of oxidation that will then render it inactive.
