Answer:

#"Carbon disulfide............"#

Explanation:

I kid you not, this material has one of the most foul odours you will smell in the lab (tho' reportedly this is due to impurities). Carbon disulfide is also volatile, (#"b.p."# #"46.2"# #""^@C#), and it can be ignited by a hot plate. Anyway, if the bottle is open you will know it, and it should be used in a hood.
