In 1836, Edmund Dowy identified Acetylene gas as a new carbon-containing compound from hydrogen. Acetylene gas was rediscovered in 1860 by the French chemist Marceline Bertolt, who named it acetylene. Bertolt produced this gas by passing vapors of organic compounds through a hot, molten tube and collecting the output. safety information Acetylene is a [...]

Carbon dioxide


History Carbon dioxide is the first gas to be identified as a separate substance. In 1640, a chemist named John Baptiste von Helmont observed that the mass of ash left over from burning charcoal indoors was less than the original amount of coal. So he concluded that the rest of the coal would become [...]

Carbon monoxide


Safety and classification Carbon monoxide falls into the category of toxic and flammable gases. Exposure to this gas over a long period of time, even at low concentrations, can lead to complications such as dizziness, loss of consciousness and even death. Breathing this gas in moderate concentrations causes headache, drowsiness, dizziness, irritability, excessive salivation, [...]



Argon, which means inactive in Greek, refers to the inactive chemical nature of this substance. In 1785, Henry Cavendish suggested that argon was present in the air. In 1894, Lord Riley and William Ramsey separated argon by removing nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water from the air. Argon was also observed in 1882 following [...]
