My buddy here uses "dimethyldeath" for a descriptive chemical name. If you don't want it to be flammable I suggest "dichlorodeath."

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 – 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.
If you have any suggestions, please reply direct to stevemclean**At_Symbol_Here**byu.edu
