    Osmium Tetraoxide - Exhuberently toxic vapors at low ppm exposure.
    Potassium Cyanide - Deadly, obviously.
    Sodium Azide - Similar to, and interestingly, far more deadly/dangerous than cyanide.
    Hydrogen Cyanide (generated) - Also deadly.
    Ozone - More dangerous than you think.
    Dioxin - Much less toxic than the notorious ones, but still bad.

    Thionyl Chloride - Corrosive, toxic, decomposes to toxic vapors, explodes if handled improperly.
    Carbon Monoxide - Deadly, obviously.

    My memory is a little fuzzy because it's not a reagent I used often. I am pretty sure the overwhelming majority of the cases were to attempt to do a lithium-halogen exchange on a C-Br bond.
