Abstract: 

Development of various industries and consequently increase of waste production from these industrial activities have created the environmental damages and public health problems. With respect to the chronic environmental effects of these pollutants, their intensive and extensive impacts have been affected and ignored in many occasions. Meanwhile, the effects of chemical warfare agents such as sulfur mustard SM, Arsenic agents lewisite and cyanide compounds with its terrible impacts during 8 years war between Iran and Iraq as a strong pollutant producing agent against the military forces and drinking waters in the field is noteworthy. These pollutants may cause severe environmental problems such as water pollutions, Due to their chemical properties and lack of proper treatment processes. Surveys show that various methods have been suggested for the removal of arsenic and cyanide compounds from water and wastewater, but treatment of water and wastewater which contaminated by SM, has not been studied or the results of studies have not been published. In this review article chemical and physical properties of SM and also treatment procedure of polluted water and waste water with SM will be discussed.
