Molecule Structure Image



Tabun is classified as a nerve agent.It is also classified as a weapon of mass destruction.It was the very first nerve agent to be discovered by Dr Gerhar Schrader in 1937.It inhibit the acetylcholinesterase enzyme that allows the neurotransmitter acetylcholine substrate to bind at its active site and form a temporary ES-complex, which normally dissociates into the new product and a free enzyme, and stimulating the muscle to cramp up and tighten.
