Article on Novichok agents in the monthly magazine of the German Chemical Society

In June 2020 the addition of a number of new chemicals and family of chemicals to Schedule 1 of the Chemical Weapons Convention entered into force. According to Member States these additions include agents from the so-called “Novichok” group of agents.

Written totally unrelated to the recent poisoning of Mr Navalny by a Novichok agent, but certainly well timed, my article “Ein unbekanntes Nervengift” covering these nerve agents appeared in the September issue of “Nachrichten aus der Chemie”, the monthly publication of the German Chemical Society. Due to the Navalny case and general interest the GDCh made the article open-access so please follow the above link (Article in German).
