Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas, yet very toxic to humans and animals.

It consists of one carbon atom and one oxygen atom, connected by a covalent double bond and a dative covalent bond. It is the simplest oxocarbon, and is an anhydride of formic acid.

Carbon monoxide burns with a blue flame, producing carbon dioxide. Despite its toxicity, coal gas, which was widely used before the 1960s for domestic lighting, cooking and heating, produced carbon monoxide as a byproduct.

Some processes in modern technology, such as iron smelting, still produce carbon monoxide as a byproduct.
