    Deaths from exposure to caustic substances are infrequently reported in the Forensic Medicine literature. Cases of deaths due to Sulphuric acid, Nitric acid and Hydrochloric acid ingestion in patients of depression were being reported. But, in this case the relative of patient gave history of ingestion of Domestic floor cleaning material, constituent of which was unknown to the relative. I am not aware that the exhumation of a body suspected of having been poisoned with sulphuric acid has taken place for the pur- pose of verifying the suspicion of poisoning by that acid, but such a case may occur. The following experiment of ORFILA throws some light on what we may expect to meet with in the examination of such a case.

Low- temperature ashing of biological material gives a white or grey powder soluble in hydrochloric acid, while the freeze-dried sample needs to be dis- solved in concentrated nitric and sulphuric acids.

INTRODUCTION. Suicide in psychiatric patients using caustic substances though rare, is not unknown. In this case report, death due to Sulphuric acid ingestion in a patient having Major Depressive Disorder is being reported for three reasons; 1) rarity of this mode of suicide 2) factors influencing the mode of suicide 3) legal issues concerning suicide in mental : KNagaraja Rao, CY Sudarshan.

We report the case of a year-old male patient, who had attempted suicide, by drinking about mL of 25% hydrochloric acid, and who had severe intra-abdominal damage. We report the case of a year-old male patient, who had attempted suicide, by drinking about mL of 25% hydrochloric acid, and who had severe intra-abdominal damage.

A case of death due to Sulphuric acid ingestion in a patient of Major Depressive Disorder is being reported. using acids as weapons or as a means of suicide. The primary mechanism of acid. Sulfuric acid (American spelling) or sulphuric acid (British spelling), also known as oil of vitriol, is a mineral acid composed of the elements sulfur, oxygen and hydrogen, with molecular formula H 2 SO is a colourless, odourless, and viscous liquid that is soluble in water and is synthesized in reactions that are highly exothermic.

Its corrosiveness can be mainly ascribed to its strong Chemical formula: H, ₂SO, ₄. To commit suicide the man used a sophisticated double container-system equipped with a timer for controlled generation of CO based on the chemical reaction of concentrated sulphuric acid and.

Sulfuric acid poisoning. Sulfuric acid is a dangerous chemical component with toxic properties. In case of poisoning with sulfuric acid, 2 possible scenarios are possible. In the first case, a man is etched with a liquid reagent, in the second case in pairs. Poisoning in pairs is. when heated with oxalic acid and concentrated sulphuric acid, it forms aurin, C 19 H 14 O condenses with aceto-acetic ester, in the presence of sulphuric acid, to β-methyl coumarin (H.

Pechmann and J. Cohen, Ber.,17, p. The hydrogen of the hydroxyl group in phenol can be replaced by metals, by alkyl groups and by acid radicals.

In most of the cases of complex suicide, wrist cutting was found with other combinations. 2 To the best of our knowledge, a combination of cut injury to the wrist with corrosive acid poisoning has not been reported previously.

In cases of sulphuric acid poisoning, the time interval between acute ingestion of sulphuric acid and death is known as. Perforation may rarely occur. MEDICO-LEGAL ASPECTS: Accidental & suicidal cases are common but homicidal rare.

OXALIC ACID Properties: Colorless, transparent, prismatic crystals, sour taste, strongly acidic: sublimes after heating: soluble in water and alcohol.

C. odollain is responsible for ca. 50% of the plant-poisoning cases and 10% of the total poisoning cases in Kerala, and it is usually detected in cases of suicide involving women and children of the villages in the coastal area; it is also used as an arrow poison in Southern and Eastern Africe.

addition of concentrated sulphuric acid, which. SULPHURIC ACID Sulphuric acid is the strongest corrosive poison. Pure sulphuric acid (H2SO4) is a heavy, odourless, colourless, non-fuming, hygroscopic, oily liquid and has tendency to carbonise organic substances. Signs and symptoms: Burns of the mouth result in.

Suicide, from Latin suicidium, is "the act of taking one's own life". Attempted suicide or non-fatal suicidal behavior is self-injury with at least some desire to end one's life that does not result in death. Assisted suicide is when one individual helps another bring about their own death indirectly via providing either advice or the means to the end.

Kidneys - Swollen, reddish, soft, sometime greasy in touch with haemorrhage in calyces and other degenerative changes - cases of poisoning with mercury, oxalic ad carbolic acid, phosphorus, cantherides, viper snake venom and many others.

In case oxalic acid poisoning, white powder of oxalate crystals are present in the tubules and the calyces. Oxalic Acid.—Accidental poisoning has occurred by taking oxalic acid in mistake for epsom salts.

The sour taste is very different from the taste of epsom salts. Symptoms vary with the quantity taken. Taylor says the minimum fatal dose is one drachm. Death has occurred as early as ten minutes after taking the poison in excess.

Concentrated sulphuric acid is usually a brownish colored liquid, which chars or corrodes wood or other organic matter brought into contact with it, and when mixed with water gives out heat. When diluted, its presence may be thus detected: 1. The liquid is known to be acid.

COVID rates in children are 'steadily increasing' and now account for % of all US cases, CDC warns - while top doctor urges kids returning.

sulfuric acid is a strong dibasic mineral acid little dissociated at the pure state, the chemical activity of which increases up to a certain point by dilution.

It is prepared both by the obsolete lead chamber method, obtaining a 60/66(Bé acid, and by the more recent catalytic method, with which oleum or fuming sulfuric acid is obtained.Dilute sulphuric acid () - Add ml of concentrated sulphuric acid slowly into ml of distilled water.

Procedure: Place 50 ml of the filtered sample water in a ml conical flask and acidify by adding 5 ml of dilute H 2 SO 4. Add 10 ml of standard KMnO 4 solution and keep on water bath for half an hour.
