Sarin

CAS RN:107-44-8

Other Properties

Rapidly hydrolyzed by dilute aqueous sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate forming relatively non-toxic products.

Hydrolyzed by water

Volatility: 21,900 mg/cu m at 25 deg C

G-agents are miscible in both polar and nonpolar solvents. They hydrolyze slowly in water at neutral or slightly acidic pH and more rapidly under strong acid or alkaline conditions. The hydrolysis products are considerably less toxic than the original agent.

Although the G-agents are liquids under ordinary atmospheric conditions, their relatively high volatility permits them to be disseminated in vapor form.

Colorless, odorless /G-agents/

Henry's Law constant = 5.72X10-7 atm-m cu/mole at 25 deg C (est)

Hydroxyl radical reaction rate constant = 4.02X10-11 cu cm/molec-sec at 25 deg C (est)
