Abstract : Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a potentially deadly gas that naturally occurs in petroleum and natural gas. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration cites H2S as a leading cause of workplace gas inhalation deaths. H2S is also an attractive terrorism tool because of its high toxicity and ease with which it can be produced. Although unlikely to cause casualties when released in open spaces, in closed spaces, such as aircraft, fatalities could occur. Several potential antidotes are available for hydrogen sulfide poisoning but none have been completely successful.
