sustantivo[mass noun] Chemistry
- Alternative name: carbonyl chloride; chemical formula: COCl2.
- New agents, notably phosgene (an asphyxiating agent) and mustard (a blister agent called a vesicant), had been developed and used.
- The primary gaseous agents used were chlorine, phosgene, a combination of the two, and mustard gas.
- However, its immediate precursor compound, thiodiglycol, is used industrially, although in quantities that don't come anywhere near chlorine or phosgene.
