Research Area 3: Chemistry in Extreme Environments

Focus Area 2: High Temperature Properties and Chemistry of Agents and Simulants

Goal: Identify, understand, and control relevant decomposition reactions and kinetics of chemical warfare agents and their simulants as they are subjected to counter-WMD conditions.

Long-term Strategy: Complementary experimental and computational investigations of the fundamental chemical reactions and kinetics of (a) agents/simulants, (b) agents/simulants in combination with various RMs/EMs, and (c) agents/simulants with various RMs/EMs in a turbulent/dusty environment.
