Chlorosarin is a chemical precursor used in the final step of one method for the production of the nerve agent Sarin. Also known as O-isopropyl methylphosphonochloridate and isopropyl methylphosphonic chloride, it has a molecular weight of 156.54856 and a molecular formula of C4H10ClO2P.

Safety[edit]

Chlorosarin will produce similar effects of the original sarin if it absorb through body but less severe, However like Sarin it is highly toxic and small doses of it would be lethal. The Chemical Weapons Convention also lists chlorosarin as well as other chemicals like chlorosoman and QL as controlled substances in schedule 1.
