Abstract

The threat of attacks using chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear means (CBRN) describe some of the most extreme possible events in a scenario of conflict. This chapter focuses on chemical (C) threats, where chemical agents are intended to cause a toxic effect on human organisms and where our definition of toxicity excludes those related to radiation exposure and/or the actions of pathogens. We define chemical agents as compounds that may exist in any physical state (e.g., solid, liquid, aerosol, vapour, gas).
