Tabun is a nerve agent. The substance was discovered in 1936 by the German chemist Gerhard Schrader, who was then responsible for the I.G. Farben (Leverkusen) worked in research on new pesticides. From 1942 Tabun was industrially produced and filled in the Second World War for the German Wehrmacht in bombs and shells, but not used.
