Abstract

Hydrocarbons are widely distributed in the environment in several compounds, most commonly in petroleum-related products. Butane is one such compound that is arguably one of the most common chemicals found in petroleum and related derivatives. Also, butane is said to be voluntarily inhaled by many for its euphoriant effect. Other than this voluntary exposure, the public may be exposed to the harmful effects of butane in cases of accidental contact. The authors report a case analysis report of a butane disaster (which killed many) that happened in Karnataka.
