One good, deep lung-full of hydrogen disulfide
causes almost immediate loss of consciousness and cessation of heart and brain activity within minutes.
Sasol annually releases over 264,600 pounds of hydrogen disulfide
, a broad-spectrum poison affecting the eyes, respiratory, and nervous systems.
Gordon, a chemist at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and his colleagues recently achieved "coherent phase control" of hydrogen disulfide
molecules by firing ultraviolet lasers of different wavelengths at them.
