@aumedia @au_cas @ScienceMagazine Glad to contribute to this @ScienceMagazine story. Even happier to hear that Navalny is recovering.

Germany announced that it will contact the @OPCW re: the poisoning of #Navalny with a #Novichok agent, which is now firmly within the CWC's verification system. @s_costanzi & @gregkoblentz discussed Novichoks in the CWC context for @TheNonproReview: https://t.co/0Jar0ml82e

@gregkoblentz @OPCW @TheNonproReview @ArmsControlNow And to see the structures of the Novichok agents recently added to CWC Schedule 1, check out our annotated tables. The agent reportedly used for the attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal (A-234) is the one listed as CWC 1A14 Example 3.

Here's the setup to Jennet Conant's new book: An American merchant ship carrying a top-secret shipment of nitrogen mustard gas shells slips into the port city of Bari mere months after Italy’s surrender to the Allied forces. Disaster ensues.
