What is chlorine trifluoride

Five of the most dangerous chemicals in the world

Natural sciences have done a lot of good for mankind through technical novelties and innovations. But where a lot of good comes from, a lot of bad can also come from. Chemistry and physics in particular are examples of this double-edged sword, some substances are vital and some are life-threatening. We introduce you to five of the most dangerous chemicals in the world.

1. Botulinum toxin

Even if it doesn't seem like it at first glance, everyone knows this chemical. It is the most toxic toxin in the world. What sounds very dramatic at first is actually the truth. It is also true that it is used all over the world on a daily basis, especially in western cultures. However, only in a diluted form - we're talking about Botox. Nowadays primarily used for wrinkle treatment, in its pure form it is a deadly poison that paralyzes nerve tracts.

2. Chlorine trifluoride

Behind this difficult word is a chemical that is particularly aggressive. Chlorine trifluoride goes up in flames just in contact with almost anything. This property is called Hypergolity - some rocket fuels are also hypergolic. If you thought that some materials are completely non-flammable, such as bricks or glass - with chlorine trifluoride this is possible, but not recommended. Because of this rather difficult handling, this chemical is rarely used in industry.

When dealing with such chemicals is extreme caution asked. If you work with toxic substances in your company, we can recommend our software to you. With RISK project it is possible to create risk assessments, duty rosters or operating instructions in no time at all in order to make hazardous substance management as safe and easy as possible. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in hazardous substance management with RISK-Project.

3. Dimethylcadmium

This chemical is practically one Heavy metal for inhalation and therefore very dangerous. The component cadmium alone is very dangerous, since cadmium is carcinogenic and attacks both organs and bones. The combination of dimethylcadmium is volatile, which means that it is very easy to breathe or ingest. Due to these dangerous properties, any contact with cadmium and related reaction products should be strictly avoided.

4. Fluoroantimonic acid

This acid makes hydrochloric acid & Co. look pretty old. Fluoroantimonic acid is considered to be the strongest acid in the world and arises when you combine two already strong acids. That way will too Super acid called. You really shouldn't play games with it.

5. Thioacetone

Thioacetone is neither toxic nor explosive. It stinks. So much so that even a tiny drop of this chemical can be smelled hundreds of meters away. Thinning does not help. For the good of yourself and your fellow human beings, any contact with thioacetone should be avoided, because it rightly has the reputation of the substance with the most pervasive odor of all to be.
