Tetraborane, B4H10, is one of several stable binary boron–hydrogen compounds. It was synthesized in 1955 by the pyrolysis of B2H6. It is a gas with the characteristic musty odor of boron hydrides, and, like the others, is toxic to the central nervous system. It can be absorbed through the skin, which exacerbates its toxicity.
