“Due to unparalleled surface area, unique morphology, increased porosity, and small crystallite sizes these nanomaterials (a nanometer is one-billionth of a meter) exhibit enhanced chemical reactivity. NanoScale has compiled extensive data on the reactivity of nanomaterials towards many hazards including acidic and caustic gases, chlorocarbons, organophosphorus compounds, simulants as well as chemical warfare agents. The reactive nanomaterials not only adsorb toxic compounds, but also chemically dismantle them. This inhibits the possibility of desorption of captured agents. In addition, decomposition products are much less toxic or nontoxic and are typically in an easily disposable solid form.” Utilizing this technology, NanoScale has developed FAST-ACT. This proprietary formulation of nanomaterials is safe, non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-corrosive.
