Header and Body 1


Organophosphates (OPs) are a type of toxic compound used in insecticides, herbicides and nerve agents for chemical warfare. They pose a great risk to human health and the environment, resulting in an estimated 300,000 deaths and casualties a year. This technology introduces chemical compositions for the decontamination of OPs.

In addition, the same chemical structures introduced here can be used to decontaminate bacteria such as enterococcus faecalis, which is prevalent in hospital infections.
