Hydrogen selenide properties
Hydrogen selenide (H2Se) – also known as selenium hydride – is commonly used in selenium compounds synthesis. It can also be found in many industrial applications like electronics (production of components), the steel industry (alloy preparation), glass or paint industries (pigmentation), rubber production (vulcanization) or in copper refining.

Hydrogen selenide effects on health
Hydrogen selenide (H2Se) is an inorganic compound that can irritate the eyes, digestive and breathing systems. This is the most toxic selenium compound with a TWA (time-weighted average) value set at 0.05 ppm. Even at very low concentrations, this compound features a very irritating horseradish-like smell that evolves into a rotten egg smell at higher concentrations.
