… CW [chemical warfare] agents are extremely toxic synthetic chemicals that can be dispersed in a gas, liquid or aerosol or as agents adsorbed to particles to become a powder. … Now, Jin Montclare, an associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering is trying to thwart these agents by improving upon compounds known to neutralize them. Montclare is working in a U.S. government program to do so and is awarded a grant by the U.S. Government’s CounterACT (Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats) program under the National Institutes of Health.
