  • This writer therefore attributes the poisonous effects to the formation of the hydrogen compound of arsenic, viz., arseniureted hydrogen (AsH_ {3}); the hydrogen, for the formation of this compound, being generated, the writer thinks probable, "by the joint action of moisture and organic matters, viz., of substances used in fixing to walls papers impregnated with arsenic."

    The Dream Doctor

  • I do not think that arseniureted hydrogen could be formed under the _conditions_, for the oxygen compound of arsenic is in a state of combination, and the compound is in a dry solid state and not in solution and the affinities of the two elements -- arsenic and hydrogen -- for each other are so exceedingly weak that they cannot be made to unite directly except they are both set free at the same moment in presence of each other.
