When diluting an acid makes it lethal

No, this is not an article on the chemistry of the Bhopal Gas tragedy. My chemistry is way too poor for me to explain that.

Note:

  1. I’ve provided links and references as footnotes wherever I deemed it to be significant.
  2. I apologise if my article hurts the sentiments of any readers, my intention is to make people realise what happens in the event of a disaster. I sincerely wish and hope that no disaster ever occurs.
  3. I am *NOT* a doomsayer.

Flashback – 1984, Bhopal

Do I even need to remind what happened? I am not diving into the specifics of what happened. I am mentioning this so that you can have some statistics as a reference for the rest of the article.

Number of people murdered : 15,000 (possibly more) [1]

Compensation                         : $ 470 million (which the government itself agreed to be inadequate) [2] (more…)
