  CDC | Facts About VX
VX is an oily liquid that is amber in color and very slow to evaporate.
VX is primarily a liquid exposure hazard, but if it is heated to very high temperatures, it can turn into small amounts of vapor (gas).
VX is the least volatile of the nerve agents, which means that it is the slowest to evaporate from a liquid into a vapor.

 MSDS: VX
VX is not listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), or National Toxicology Program (NTP) as a carcinogen.
Unstabilized VX of 95% purity decomposes at a rate of 5% a month at 71 °C.
Based on the concentration of EA2192 expected to be formed during hydrolysis and its toxicity (1.4 mg/kg dermal in rabbit at 24 hours in a 10/90 wt.% ethanol/water solution), a Class B poison would result.

 FOXNews.com - VX - U.S. & World
Although a cocktail of drugs can serve as an antidote, VX acts so quickly that victims would have to be injected with the antidote almost immediately to have a chance at survival.
Synthesizing VX to be used as a weapon is complicated and extremely dangerous.
As with other nerve agents, the most effective treatment for VX is the immediate injection of a mix of the drugs atropine and pralidoxime chloride, which counteract the effects of the nerve agent on the peripheral nervous system and help victims breathe; and diazepam, which counteracts the central nervous system effects of VX, including seizures.

 VX Gas, What is VX Gas? About its Science, Chemistry and Structure
VX gas is one of the most dangerous chemicals created.
VX gas was developed in the Porton Down Chemical Weapons Research Centre, Wiltshire, England in 1952 and its devastating effects were tested.
VX has not been used to its fullest potential yet because it is too dangerous to use for local attacks with wind that could blow the VX back onto the base.

The extent of poisoning caused by VX depends on the amount of VX a person was exposed to, how the person was exposed, and the length of time of the exposure.
VX vapor is heavier than air, so it would be more likely to settle in low-lying areas.

 ATSDR - ToxFAQs™: Nerve Agents (GA, GB, GD, VX)
VX is a clear, amber-colored odorless, oily liquid.
When released to air, GA, GB, GD, and VX will be broken down by compounds that are found in the air, but they may persist in air for a few days before being broken down.
Regardless of the route of exposure, the manifestation of nerve agent exposure includes runny nose, chest tightness, pinpoint pupils, shortness of breath, excessive salivation and sweating, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, involuntary defecation and urination, muscle twitching, confusion, seizures, paralysis, coma, respiratory paralysis, and death.

 VX gas as chemical agent
VX is very persistent as compared to other agents of chemical kind.ie.
A casualty dosage of approximately 5mg-min/m3 causes symptoms like coughs,increased salival and nasal secretion to occur.As concentration of the VX agent increases in dosage, more severe symptoms arise, such as acute bronchoconstriction, gastro-intestinal induced nausea and higher rate of perspiration.These are the early signs of a victim being affected by VX gas poisoning.
Hence, it is crucial that he/she be sent to the intensive care unit ASAP as it takes at least 2-3 weeks (depending on dosage) for the patient to recover from the sublethal dose.Any longer may result in obvious death due to suffocation.How worse could it get for an asthmatic person!

 The Gadgeteer - Palm m505 / Palm Vx Comparison Review
The m505 stylus is identical to the Vx series, except for the topmost section, the bit that actually holds the stylus in the unit.
Compared to the Vx the screen is a definitive improvement in terms of refresh rates.
The m505 uses a 33Mhz CPU as opposed to the Vx's 20Mhz unit, and the percentage speed increase is probably the same as the difference in CPU clock speeds.

 VX Nerve Agent
The U.S. Army is proposing to pre-treat stockpiles of VX nerve agent at its Newport Chemical Agent Disposal Facility in Newport Indiana, and then transport the resulting hydrolysate across the country to the Dupont Chambers Works facility at Carney’s Point, Salem County, NJ for final treatment and disposal into the Delaware River.
The Army is proposing to “neutralize” the VX nerve agent stored at the Newport, Indiana facility using a chemical neutralization process.
While VX hydrolysate is said by the Army to be much less toxic than VX, they agree that additional treatment is needed in order to meet requirements for disposal.

 Riegle Report - Lethal Nerve Agent VX
This value is based on the TWA of VX as proposed in the USAEHA Technical Guide No. 169, "Occupational Health Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Occupational Exposure to Nerve Agents GA, GB, GD, and VX." To date, however, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has not promulgated permissible exposure concentration for VX.
VX is a lethal anticholinergic agent with the median dose in man being: LC50 (skin) = 0.135 mg/kg; ID50 (Skin) - 0.07 - 0.71 mg/kg; LCt50 (inhalation) = 30 mg min/m3; LCt50 (inhalation) - 30 mg min/m3; LCt50 (inhalation) - 24 mg min/m3.
