Why does sulfur smell like rotten eggs? - The Periodic Elements NFT (GIVEAWAY)

Sulfur is a chemical element of the periodic table of the elements with symbol S and atomic number 16. It is an odorless, tasteless, very abundant non-metal. Its best known and most common form is the crystalline one with an intense yellow color. It is present in the form of sulfides and sulfates in many minerals and is often found pure in regions with active volcanoes.

It is an essential element for all living beings, where it is present in two amino acids, cysteine and methionine, and consequently in many proteins. In the industrial field it is used above all to obtain fertilizers, but also for gunpowder, laxatives, insecticides and fungicides.

The large quantities of carbon burned by industry and power plants release a lot of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere every day, which reacts with oxygen and water vapor in the air to form sulfuric acid. This strong acid falls back to earth with rainfall giving rise to the famous acid rains that acidify soils and water resources causing severe damage to the natural environment of many industrialized regions.

Sulfur is pale yellow in color, soft, light, and has a characteristic odor when it binds with hydrogen (smell of rotten eggs: it should be noted that this is not the odor of sulfur, which is odorless, but only of its compound hydrogen sulfide, H2S).

Sulfur is often associated with volcanism in particular with fumaroles and sulfataras.

The giveaway

This morning the machine jammed and instead of sending 50 NFTs to the phosphorus winners, we sent 50 NFTs of sulfur.
Very quick consultation and then the decision to give the 50 phosphorus winners both a NFT of phosphorus and one of sulfur. The intention was to do no wrong to those who for some reason were not entitled to the free NFT of phosphorus.
We have decided to add another 20 free sulfur NFTs to the first 20 who will comment this article with their wax address and who have not already received a free sulfur NFT.

The phosphorus giveaway received more than 50 comments in about an hour, thanks to everyone for their trust.


The Periodic Table NFT project

The Periodic Table NFT project aims to raise awareness of chemical elements in a modern key, basing the approach on blockchain and Non Fungible Token.
Day after day it will be possible to know the single elements that make up the table, to collect curiosities about each of them and about the table in general.
We are working to be able to learn, in a playful way, also what happens by combining the various elements.
The whole project is based on the collection of NFTs that can be bought on the site https://wax.atomichub.io/market?collection_name=periodicelem&order=desc&sort=created&symbol=WAX or by participating in simple giveaways published on publish0x.

Periodic Table Of Elements - NFT

The periodic table, also known as the periodic table of elements, is a tabular display of the chemical elements, which are arranged by atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties. Each of us has a good memory of the school period. The periodic table of the elements was certainly a part of our journey. The time has come to retrace each element and collect the most exciting ones.
