Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is slightly less dense than air.
An oxide is a chemical compound that contains at least one oxygen atom and one other element in its chemical formula.
Why is Carbon Monoxide So Deadly? - GTKAM by Reactions
It is toxic to hemoglobic animals when encountered in concentrations above about 35 ppm, although it is also produced in normal animal metabolism in low quantities, and is thought to have some normal biological functions.
About Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Monoxide Poisoning by EMDPrepare
In the atmosphere, it is spatially variable and short lived, having a role in the formation of ground-level ozone.
Ozone, or trioxygen, is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula O
Carbon monoxide consists of one carbon atom and one oxygen atom, connected by a triple bond that consists of two covalent bonds as well as one dative covalent bond.
A triple bond in chemistry is a chemical bond between two atoms involving six bonding electrons instead of the usual two in a covalent single bond.
A covalent bond, also called a molecular bond, is a chemical bond that involves the sharing of electron pairs between atoms.
Carbon is a chemical element with symbol C and atomic number 6.
It is the simplest oxocarbon and is isoelectronic with the cyanide anion, the nitrosonium cation and molecular nitrogen.
The nitrosonium ion is NO+, in which the nitrogen atom is bonded to an oxygen atom with a bond order of 3, and the overall diatomic species bears a positive charge.

A cyanide is any chemical compound that contains monovalent combining group CN.
In coordination complexes the carbon monoxide ligand is called carbonyl.
In chemistry, a coordination complex consists of a central atom or ion, which is usually metallic and is called the coordination centre, and a surrounding array of bound molecules or ions, that are in turn known as ligands or complexing agents.
