10. Nitric acid is a highly corrosive mineral acid that can be very harmful to the human body. It has a few practical applications, the most common of which is thermal explosives. It can harm the human body in a number of ways, but the most common are corrosion of the skin. Despite corrosion being the most common form of damage, when nitric acid comes in contact with organic material, there is also a chance that it may explode on touch. This makes it a very dangerous chemical that must be handled by professionals. In the image you see the results of nitric acid making contact with organic matter. It is not a pretty sight.
9. Phosphine is a dangerous chemical element that is used in fumigation and pest control. It is a form of gas, but that does not mean it cannot be a conductor and that is why it doubles as a very useful conductor in microelectronics. It is very toxic to the human respiratory system and can cause breathing failures in those exposed to it. In addition to this, it can mix with air, causing itself to self-ignite. This chemical is always handled with extreme caution.
8. Generally, this is a very calm chemical. However, in its solid state, it becomes highly volatile and therefore very dangerous to handle. In its gaseous form, it is less volatile, but it is still deadly. It has an extremely high exposure risk and has the potential to heavily poison the human body and cause painful sickness and even death in its victims. It has many uses in the world, but that does not change the fact that it could kill a person.
7. Nickel Carbonyl is a chemical that is used frequently in the study of organic chemistry. It is a yellow liquid that is very unstable and degrades quickly in the air. It is very poisonous and it reacts directly with CO. When it gets into the air and is breathed in, the one who breathed it in can become dangerously sick, even fatally sick if the exposure was too high.
6. Arsine is a highly toxic chemical that is also known as arsenic. Arsenic is essentially poison. It does have one application that is not death related and that is in microelectronics. Besides that, this chemical is used almost exclusively in rat poison and chemical bombs. It is highly damaging to the system and can kill very quickly. Arsine or arsenic should be avoided at all costs.
5. This chemical is a nasty one, not because of what it is, but because of what it is derived from. It comes from acrylic acid which is a very corrosive and difficult to handle chemical. To make acryloyl Chloride is a very dangerous job and coming in contact with acrylic acid can cause major damage to any of the body’s various parts.
4. Alkylaluminum is an alkaline modification of standard aluminum. Its danger stems from the alkaline state that it exists in. Life cannot survive or persist in an alkaline environment and therefore this chemical, in direct contact with a human or any other organic lifeform, is incredibly harmful. It can cause painful sickness and death with relative ease and very little exposure. Extreme caution must be used while handling this.
3. Freon is a highly damaging chemical to the human body. Some people have been known to use it for self-intoxication which can freezer burn your lungs. The reason it is so damaging, besides the chemical pollution one would suffer from coming in contact with it, is due to the fact that refrigerants such as freon can cause massive skin damage and burns. This is because it is so cold. In the image you see a clear example of this. Blisters form on the hand due to the extreme cold of the freon when it made contact. As stated before, this is a type of freezer burn.
2. Ammonia is an extremely hazardous gas that is colorless, yet has a very strong smell. It is highly toxic and breathing it in can cause massive internal trauma. It is also very caustic and should not be touched with bare skin. At one point in time, it was used as a cleaning product, but this was stopped due to the obvious danger to the human body that ammonia represents.
1. Sulfur dioxide is a chemical that takes form as a toxic gas. This gas comes from many things that we as humans produce. This includes factories, cars, airplanes, and more. Sulfur dioxide is the pollution you see floating into the air from smokestacks. It rips apart the ozone and poisons the atmosphere of our planet. Human-made sulfur dioxide is one of the driving forces in climate change.
