Hello,

I mixed these today:

H3PO4
NaOH
Tetrahydrofuran CH₂)₄O
Cyklohexanon C6H10O
2-Butanon C4H8O

It started to generate smoke. Just wondering if this gas might have been dangerous to breath in? theories? experiences?

Thanks
Stan

Yes it is dangerous.
The heat generated by mixing H3PO4 and NaOH will evaporate the hydrocarbons, which I expect will quickly cover the surface of your lungs and drown you.

Don't mix things unless you know what you are doing.
