  • The gas stibine (SbH_ {3}) is formed under conditions which are very similar to those which produce arsine, and it closely resembles the latter compound, though it is still less stable.

    An Elementary Study of Chemistry

  • When any compound containing arsenic is brought into the presence of nascent hydrogen, arsine (AsH_ {3}), corresponding to phosphine and ammonia, is formed.

    An Elementary Study of Chemistry

  • Such materials should not be used in preparing hydrogen, since the arsenic present combines with a portion of the hydrogen to form a very poisonous gas known as arsine.

    An Elementary Study of Chemistry

  • If a substance containing arsenic is now introduced into the generator A, the arsenic is converted into arsine by the action of the nascent hydrogen, and passes to the jet along with the hydrogen.

    An Elementary Study of Chemistry

  • If the tube C is strongly heated at some point near the middle, the arsine is decomposed while passing this point and the arsenic is deposited just beyond the heated point in the form of a shining, brownish-black mirror.
