Abstract: This review deals with history and recent technological advancements in the area of nano materials (NMs) and their application in decontamination of chemical warfare agents, which on contact create adverse health symptoms in humans. NMs based decontamination systems are an alternative approach to liquid decontamination media with promising decontamination properties against chemical warfare agents. High surface area and adequate reactivity towards chemical warfare detoxification are key assets of NMs intended for such applications.
