Sulfur was utilized by medieval soldiers to confuse and irritate their foes, but because to an inadequate technological skill, it was hard to create or collect a constant supply of efficient chemical agents.
The industrial revolution had opened to possibilities that were not available before. Advancements in chemistry had progressed, resulting in not just newer chemicals, but also more inexpensive techniques to synthesize them in huge numbers.
On the battlefields of World War I, a vesicant (an agent that causes blisters) was first deployed as a chemical weapon. There have been allegations of mustard gas usage during the Iran-Iraq war in th 1980s. The threat of terrorism was among the main concerns as the US army engaged UN forces in anticipation for the liberation of Kuwait in 1990.
Sulfur and nitrogen based mustard are the two forms of mustard gas available. The sulfur based mustard gas was developed in 1822. However the nitrogen based mustard gas is the more pure version that is preferred to be synthesized. This was the form that was employed by the Germans in WW1.
