Toxic: A history of nerve agents 7.00pm to 8.30pm, Tuesday 17 November

Nerve agents are the world’s deadliest means of chemical warfare.

Developed by Nazi Germany, but not used in the Second World War, nerve agents have since spread across the world, despite international arms control efforts..

In this talk, Dan Kaszeta uncovers the development and propogation of these deadly compounds, from their Nazi invention to their recent use by assassins in Salisbury, England.

Dan Kaszeta lives in London, where he runs a specialist consulting firm. He has decades of experience in protecting against chemical and biological weapons, and has held positions in the US Army, the White House Military Office, the US Secret Service and private industry.

Join Dan in this online lecture as he delves into the grisly history of these weapons of mass destruction, a deadly suite of invisible, odourless killers.
