Following the discovery of the synthetic procedure in the 1850s, the Germans were the first to produce organophosphorus nerve agents on a large scale, in the late 1930s [4]. Considered the most toxic of all chemical warfare agents (CWAs), the first reported use of organophosphorus nerve agents [Tabun (GA) and Sarin (GB)] was by Iraq against Iran during the first Gulf War and also against Kurdish rebels [4]. Sarin (GB) was also released during the Japan subway attack (1995) resulting in 12 deaths [4].

DPAA and Dimethylarsinic acid (DMA) [As(V)] (dimethylarsinic acid) have been shown to be toxic to human cells when interacting with SH compounds. Researchers saw an increase in cytotoxicity as well as structural changes within the cells [137]. Kroening and coworkers also studied the effects of cell death by the degradation products and were able to conclude that PAO, PAA, DPAA, TPA and TPAO are more toxic than common arsenic standards [138]. 5 Degradation pathway for Clark I and Clark I. pdf 48 ANALYSIS OF CHEMICAL WARFARE DEGRADATION PRODUCTS Other studies have focused on the effects of the dumped chemical warfare agents on marine life and also on the people who use the water.
