Part Descriptions

LP16837-4   Thallium
Thallium is the chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Tl and atomic number 81. This soft gray malleable poor metal resembles tin but discolors when exposed to air. Thallium is highly toxic and is used in rat poisons and insecticides but since it might also cause cancer (although the EPA does not class it as carcinogen), this use has been cut back or eliminated in many countries. It is also used in infrared detectors. It has even been used in some murders, even earning the nickname Inheritance powder alongside Arsenic.

LP16837-4   Thallium
Thallium is similar to lead and mercury in terms of its toxic properties. Chronic exposure produces alopecia, peripheral neuopathy, seizures, and renal failure. Acute poisoning results in nausea, vomiting, hematemesis, abdominal pain, diarrhea, confusion, coma, and death (in about 10% of patients). Source: Regenstrief Institute
