The 5 most dangerous chemicals that exist
Nature is full of chemical compounds that could kill us in an instant, and things get worse when the human being gets down to work to create new ones. These are the most dangerous chemicals that you can find
Chloride trifluoride (ClF3)
This compound was investigated by the Nazis under the name of “substance N”, which they initially considered using to literally melt bunkers with flamethrowers that produced flames of 2,400 ° C, to finally realize that it was too dangerous to even for them. It boils in contact with the air, it explodes in contact with the water, and if it does not kill you the explosion will do it the inhalation
In spite of everything American engineers considered their use as rocket fuel, an idea rejected when an accident in its transport caused a leak in one of the used steel tanks, ending with the substance burning the concrete floor and the rock and sand that they were below this one
Azidoazide azide (C2N14)
This compound is not only a tongue twister but also the most explosive compound ever created. Which is ironic considering that the compounds of two atoms of Nitrogen (N) are the most stable thanks to its triple bond, But with C2N14 the structure is such that of the 14 nitrogen atoms none are linked to each other by triple bond, so it is not only highly explosive (since it releases energy in the reaction) but highly reactive (unstable).
It is a compound so sensitive that we can not measure it because the slightest interaction with anything causes an explosion, even the mere fact of leaving it alone. Scientists have come to leave it in an environment free of vibrations, in the dark, with controlled temperature, and C2N14 exploded alone
Cadmium is already a dangerous element in itself, but when it creates this structure with carbon and hydrogen atoms goes much further: it becomes the most toxic product in the world. It is so toxic that it kills twice: the first when it enters the bloodstream and traps electrons from the atoms of our cells, especially effective in the lungs, kidneys, and liver, If we somehow manage to survive, surely we die of cancer since it is one of the most carcinogenic chemicals that exist
In this case, we are not facing a destructive chemical, but that does not mean that it does not deserve to be on this list of more dangerous chemicals. The big problem is its smell because it is the most fragrant chemical that exists. It is possible to instantly smell a drop of this compound 500 meters away, causing vomiting and loss of consciousness. On occasions when leaks have occurred, it has even forced a massive eviction, such as that produced in the German city of Freiburg in 1889
antimonic acid (H2FSbF6
This is the most corrosive acid that exists, known as “superacid”. To put a reference is 10,000,000,000,000,000 times stronger than sulfuric acid, which is probably the most famous. If it fell on us, we would not even have bones left; literally, since he “likes” especially calcium.
