Here you go:

And don't forget good 'ole nicotine:  Much more toxic that folks realize, particularly through skin absorption.

Assuming a typically dilute benzene solution, the flammability contribution of either would be negligible.

Personally, I always use Deathamous Trioxide for these kinds of scenarios.

I need the collective wisdom of the group…
I'm trying to think of any chemical that is soluble in benzene and has NO significant hazardous characteristics other than toxicity (i.e.,not flammable, corrosive, water-reactive, etc.).  However, the more toxic it is, the better…
I do not want the actual chemical =96 just the name.  I'm trying to create a hypothetical "what-if" scenario for an upcoming discussion about responding to chemical spills in a laboratory.
