Research Topic: "The Political Implication when Chemical Warfare is Used or Threatened to be Used for Nonwarfare Purposes"

Abstract: This thesis proposes the analyses of the political implications when chemicals are used as conventional weapons (cW) and as weapons of mass destruction (WMD). (It will not study biological or nuclear weapons). This thesis has two main components of study. The first component is the analysis of instances in which Chemical Weapons (CW) were used or threatened to be used and the analysis of instances in which countries have used chemicals as countermeasure of defense. The second component is the study of the chemicals that are used as weapons. It will cover design and synthesis of these chemicals and a careful study of the realistic conditions to spread these chemicals.
