Decontaminants, Chemical Neutralization, Oxidizing

Definition : Chemical-neutralization decontaminants consisting of powerful oxidizing agents. These decontaminants consist of common oxidizing agents or products especially designed for decontamination. Common oxidizing agents used for decontamination include calcium hypochlorite (Ca[OCl]2), sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) (i.e., laundry bleach), potassium permanganate, and aqueous solutions of chloramine-B. Some oxidants especially formulated for decontamination are available, including hyperchlorinated bleaches such as a mixture of Ca(OCl)2 and calcium oxide ([CaO], known as supertropical bleach [STB]) and Oxone (a mixture of several potassium salts). Oxidizing decontaminants are used mainly for decontamination of nerve agents of VX and the G series (e.g., tabun [GA], sarin [GB]) and/or chemical agents such as mustard (H/HD).
