“Metal organic frameworks for the catalytic detoxification of chemical warfare nerve agents Current Assignee The listed assignees may be inaccurate. Northwestern University Original Assignee Priority date 2013-12-31 2017-04-18 US9623404B2 Grant Abstract A method of using a metal organic framework (MOF) comprising a metal ion and an at least bidendate organic ligand to catalytically detoxify chemical warfare nerve agents including exposing the metal-organic-framework (MOF) to the chemical warfare nerve agent and catalytically decomposing the nerve agent with the MOF.
STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT This invention was made with government support under HDTRA1-10-1-0023 awarded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency and DE-AC05-06OR23100 (SubK No. 10-20903 DOE Oak Ridge Tenn.) awarded by the Department of Energy. The government has certain rights in the invention.
An embodiment of the method includes exposing the chemical warfare nerve agent to a metal-organic-framework (MOF), and catalytically decomposing the nerve agent with the MOF. The chemical warfare nerve agent may be an organophosphate, an organophosphorus compound, or combinations thereof. For example, the chemical warfare nerve agent may comprise … VE, VG, VM, VP, VR, VX, Novichok agents. An embodiment of the method includes filling the cartridge with a MOF (e.g. pellets, disks or a monolithic MOF body) capable of detoxifying chemical warfare nerve agents. In an embodiment, the MOF is part of a stacked bed containing other layers of materials in a respirator cartridge.”

Brits to Reportedly Wall Themselves Off From Novichok Amid Skripals’ “Miracle”
April 8, 2018
Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who were allegedly poisoned by an A-234 military grade nerve agent in the British town Salisbury, have both regained consciousness and their health is improving; but at the same time, British officials are not eager to abandon their anti-Russian agenda and are instead going even further.
First the British police announced on April 6 that Yulia Skripal’s health was getting better and then Salisbury Hospital reported that her father had regained consciousness as well and that his condition is improving. Both these developments sounded miraculous, especially after all the talk from UK officials about the A-234 military grade nerve agent, allegedly designed by Russia to assassinate targets with almost 100% efficiency, which was eagerly picked up by Western media, depicting the horrible consequences of contact with the “deadly Russian chemical weapon.”
However, it seems that the “miraculous” recovery of both Skripals from the alleged “attack” by the deadly nerve agent didn’t stop local authorities from being extremely cautious about the case. The UK newspaper The Mail on Sunday reported that Salisbury authorities are planning to build 3 meter high walls around areas which the pair visited after allegedly coming into contact with the A-234 substance.
