White Vitriol is Zinc Sulphate.

Carbon monoxide is what is emitted when burning charcoal, inside a house or out. Of course it emits no fumes, it is silent and deadly, and anyone with that type of concentration needs to get out pretty fast before the bodies begin to stack up. It is just another way the fiendish Reaper can claim you.
