Phosphor ist ein zwiespältiges Element. Es wurde seinerzeit im Urin entdeckt. Einerseits ist es lebenswichtig für Tiere und Pflanzen, zum Beispiel als Energieträger oder Teil der DNS. Reiner Phosphor dagegen ist sehr gefährlich, kann sich selbst entzünden und wird für Brandbomben verwendet.
The air we breathe is 78% Nitrogen. As unimpressive as it seems, as important it is for life and many chemical reactions: amino acids – the building blocks of life need nitrogen. But it can also be found in explosives like dynamite.
Nitro the monster is a quiet one that can’t be stirred up easily. But when someone gets on its nerves, it can literally explode.
The Sweet sang in their song Love is like Oxygen "You get too much, you get too high. Not enough and you're gonna die." We need oxygen to live, but it can be destructive as well with fire, rust etc.. It is the most common element on earth. When cooled below -218°C oxygen becomes a blueish, magnetic liquid.
Oxy the monster is a moody hothead. He interferes everywhere and easily loses his temper. But when the going gets tough, it's good to have him nearby, because for his friends he would go through fire any time.
Hydrogen is the number one among the elements. It was born right after the big bang. Even today it is the most abundant element in the universe but at the same time the smallest. We can find it in the sun, in water, in our bodies – virtually everywhere.
Hydro the monster is the eternal child. A lively little fella – curious, playful, full of energy and almost unbearably optimistic.
Sulfur used to be considered as the element from hell because of its odor. However, it is very useful for example in fertilizers or black powder.
Sulfus the monster is a little stinker that nobody wants to play with. He farts often and loves to crack dirty jokes. Therefore his true qualities are often underestimated.
Without carbon there would be no life. There are more than 16 million known carbon compounds. It can be dirty like coal or precious like diamond.
Carbo the monster is a real party animal. Knows everybody and everything and always has the latest gossip to tell. She is very creative and has good ideas, which fail quite often, unfortunately.
