Abstract: Current methods of decontamination have shortcomings regarding their deployment. Cost of storage, requirement of personal protective equipment during its employment, related damage to substrates it is applied to, and clean-up costs are some relevant examples. This project aims to develop a wide-area TIC neutralization technology based on nanoparticles of mixed metal oxides and electrochemical methods. All components of the material are non-toxic, non-corrosive, thus this product is safe to use, and is friendly to the environment. This technology will provide an efficient means to neutralize chemicals and it will be easy to apply and will be cost effective. The proposed Phase II effort will build on the concept feasibility demonstrated in the Phase I work. In the Phase II, the formulation of the material and the operation mode of the TIC neutralization technology will be optimized, typical neutralization protocols will be developed, and commercially viable laboratory lab-scale demonstration will be conducted. This technology will benefit various government departments in their efforts against chemical terrorism. Commercial applications include treatment of chemical spills due to accidents at sites of industrial production and chemical storage facilities, and in transportation and distribution operations.
