Decontaminants, Chemical Neutralization
Definition : Decontaminants intended for chemical neutralization of chemical and/or, less frequently, biological agents. These decontaminants typically consist of reactives that readily react with the chemical contaminant without stirring, heating, or shaking (i.e., reactive chemicals). Chemical-neutralization decontaminants include oxidizing agents (e.g., sodium hypochlorite [NaOCl]), strong bases (e.g., potassium hydroxide [KOH]), aqueous foams, catalytic enzymes, and organic compounds with low solubility in water (microemulsions).
