   Sarin is a poisonous liquid, C4H10FO2P, that inhibits the activity of cholinesterase and is used as a nerve gas in chemical warfare. It is extremely toxic, about 26x more toxic than cyanide. It is a clear substance that cannot be seen or smelled. It is a neurotoxin that can create the symptoms: runny nose, watery eyes, small, pinpoint pupils, eye pain, blurred vision, drooling, excessive sweating, cough, chest tightness, rapid breathing, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, increased urination, confusion drowsiness weakness, headache, slow or fast heart rate, and low or high blood pressure. Even a small drop of sarin on the skin can cause sweating and muscle twitching where sarin touched the skin. Exposure to large doses of sarin by any route may result in the following harmful health effects: Loss of consciousness, convulsions, paralysis, respiratory failure, and death. It is likely to have all of the symptoms take place at once, dishing out one of the most excruciatingly painful deaths possible. Sarin is not found in the environment, it is man-made. It is also known as GB as another name.
