An agent is a liquid if its melting point i> below ordinary temperatures and its boiling point is above such temperatures* i.e., when the

range of atmospheric temperatures lie between the melting and boiling point« of an agent, e.g., chlorpicrin (m.p. — 92.4°F., b.p. 235.4°F.).

Similarly, an agent is a solid when its melting point is above ordinary atmospheric temperatures, e.g., white phosphorus (m.p. 111°F.).

The tabulation on page 111 shows the principal World War chemical agents classified according to physical state.
