Decontamination methods for toxic chemical agents

The invention provides novel methods of detoxifying highly toxic chemicals, and treating surfaces contaminated, or potentially contaminated, with toxic chemical agents such as chemical warfare agents and/or industrial toxins. The methods employ silver-exchanged zeolites and sodium zeolites as reactive sorbents to degrade such agents or toxins on contact, in solution or vapor form.
