Abstract: Nanocrystalline magnesium oxide has been prepared by the sol-gel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction, N2-BET, SEM and infrared spectroscopic techniques. Results confirm the formation of nano-MgO materials with crystallite size in the range of 5-20 nm and surface area of 336-556 m2/g. The product has been tested as destructive adsorbent for the decontamination of (2-chloroethyl) phenyl sulfide, a mimic of bis(2-chloroethyl) sulfide ("HD" or mustard gas). Destructive adsorbent reaction has been carried out in heptane and methanol media and investigated by GC-FID and GC-MS techniques. Reaction rate in heptane is observed to be higher than in methanol. It seems that a nonpolar media aids material transfer to the reactive surface sites without blocking these sites.
