Due to this amusing effect he proposed the use ‘laughing gas’ as an alternative name for nitrous oxide, and started to demonstrate the gas's exhilarating effect to gatherings of his friends. English society seemed to be very interested in these euphoria inducing properties of laughing gas.

Nitrous oxide is a greenhouse gas that also plays a role in the cycling of stratospheric ozone. Air samples from the lower stratosphere exhibit 15N/14N and 18O/16O enrichment in nitrous oxide, which can be accounted for with a simple model describing an irreversible destruction process. Greenhouse gases include water vapor, CO2, methane, nitrous oxide (N2O) and other gases. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases turn like a blanket, gripping Infra-Red radiation and.

A Grand Exhibition of the effects produced by inhaling Nitrous Oxid, Exhilarating or Laughing Gas! will be given at Union Hall, this (Tuesday) Evening, Dec. 10th, Forty Gallons of Gas will be prepared and ad-. The data reported here for ternary mixtures of hydrogen and nitrous oxide in air indicate that small additions of nitrous oxide (relative to the amount of air) have little effect, but that higher concentrations of nitrous oxide (relative to air) significantly increase the explosion hazard.}, doi = {/}, journal = {}, number.

These nitrogen oxides consist mainly of two molecules, nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO 2); there are other nitrogen-based molecules considered to be NO x, but they occur in much lower concentrations. A closely related molecule, nitrous oxide (N 2 O), is a significant greenhouse gas that plays a role in global climate change.
