When someone is exposed to a hazardous substance, the sarin (GB) toxin develops. A nerve agent, sarin, is a chemical weapon created by humans. The most dangerous and quickly acting of the recognized chemical warfare agents are nerve agents. They function in a manner similar to that of some classes of insecticides (insect killers) known as organophosphates, as well as having similar negative consequences. Yet, compared to organophosphate pesticides, nerve poisons are significantly more toxic.
In 1938, German scientists created sarin as a pesticide. In its pure state, it is a transparent, flavorless liquid with no odor. Sarin, however, has the ability to turn into a vapor and disseminate throughout the surroundings.
