What is a quick way to detect H2S?


Hydrogen sulfide has a powerful "rotten egg" odor that can be detected in very low concentrations. Hydrogen sulfide can be detected in air

Water that contains hydrogen sulfide blackens and pits metal faucets and drains because of the formation of insoluble metal sulfides.
