Chemical Weapons Information Table

This file lists the known chemical agents currently in military applications worldwide.

The datafile does not include several agents (chlorine, for example) which have been in disuse, but which could conceivably be revived. Database users must exercise their judgment. Additionally, mixtures of agents (GB/HD, for example) sometimes have slightly different properties and effects than when used separately. Biological agents have extremely difficult parameters and were omitted intentionally; they may be added later if sufficient, easily interpretable data can be obtained at the unclassified level.
