Corexit is a product line of solvents primarily used as a dispersant for breaking up oil slicks. It is produced by Nalco Holding Company which is associated with BP . Corexit 9500, four times more toxic than crude oil, is one of the most poisonous dispersants ever developed, and is up to 20 times more toxic than other dispersants, and only half as effective.

When Corexit 9500, with its 2.61 ppm toxicity level, is combined with the warm waters of the Gulf much of it will transition into a gaseous state that will be absorbed into clouds, to be released as toxic rain upon all of the Eastern United States

[edit] History
The company was founded in 1928 in the United States as the National Aluminate Corporation formed from the merger of Chicago Chemical Company and the Aluminum Sales Corporation.[1] In 1959 it changed its name to Nalco Chemical Company and was publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under that name from 1964 until a French company, Suez, purchased it in 1999. After a name change to Ondeo Nalco Company then another change in ownership in 2003, the Company went public again, returning to the New York Stock Exchange in late 2004 under the name Nalco Holding Company.

In 2007, Nalco achieved sales of more than US$3.9 billion.

[edit] Exxon Mobil Ties
Nalco has had ongoing ties to Exxon. In 1994, Nalco and Exxon Chemical Company announce the formation of Nalco/Exxon Energy Chemicals, L.P. to provide products and services to all facets of the petroleum and natural gas industries. Then in 2001, NALCO, which then was called "Ondeo Nalco," strengthened its leadership role in the petroleum industry when Nalco/Exxon Energy Chemicals, L.P. became became part of the company through redemption of Exxon Mobil stock in the joint venture. Today, Daniel S. Sanders, who previously was president of Exxon/Mobil Chemical Company, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil, serves on the company board of directors.[2]
