The chemical that poisoned former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, England, was specially designed by the Russian military. Not only that, UK experts say Novichok is a two-part compound that when separated don't even show up on the banned chemicals list. According to NBC News, Novichok agents are thought to be far more difficult to detect during manufacturing and far easier to manufacture covertly, because they can be made with common chemicals in relatively simple pesticide factories. And because at least one of them is a powder, rather than a gas or a vapor, contamination would be harder to detect with normal chemical warfare detection methods.
