This report examines seven disposal technologies being considered by the U.S. government as alternative methods to the process of incineration for destroying mortars, rockets, land mines, and other weapons that contain chemical warfare agents, such as mustard gas. These weapons are considered especially dangerous because they contain both chemical warfare agent and explosive materials in an assembled package that must be disassembled for destruction. The study identifies the strengths and weaknesses and advantages and disadvantages of each technology and assesses their potential for full-scale implementation.http://www.nap.edu/catalog/9660.html TELEDYNE-COMMODORE SOLVATED ELECTRON TECHNOLOGY PACKAGE 140 inorganic orthophosphate and converting the thiol from VX to sulfonic acid.
