This week's C&EN

From this week's C&EN, interesting tidbits:

  1. Just out of curiosity, there were of course companies in the UK and the US which also manufactured the poison gases which we used in the first world war. Which were they, or who owns them now?

    Was also curious about who first synthesized uranium hexafluoride, and who realized that it could be used for uranium enrichment. Was it good-old-Dow-chemical who synthesized Agent Orange? Napalm? Etc.

    Just pointing out, that historically speaking, the Germans are obliged to owe up to stuff which we righteously push under the table.
