Nanomaterial fabric destroys nerve agents in battlefield-relevant conditions

Northwestern University scientists have successfully combined a nanomaterial effective at destroying toxic nerve agents with textile fibers. This new composite material one day could be integrated into protective suits and face masks for use by humans facing hazardous conditions, such as chemical warfare. The material, a zirconium-based metal-organic framework, degrades in minutes some of the most toxic chemical agents known to mankind: VX and soman (GD), a more toxic relative of sarin.
