arsenic at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

c.1386, from O.Fr. arsenic, from L. arsenicum, from Gk. arsenikon "arsenic," adopted for Syriac (al) zarniqa "arsenic," from Middle Persian zarnik "gold-colored" (arsenic trisulphide has a lemon-yellow color). The Gk. word is folk etymology, from arsen "male, strong, virile" (cf. arseno-koites "lying with men" in N.T.) supposedly in reference to the powerful properties of the substance. The mineral (as opposed to the element) is properly orpiment, from L. auri pigmentum, so called because it was used to make golden dyes. ///

arsenic at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Nonmetallic to semimetallic chemical element, chemical symbol As, atomic number 33. It exists uncombined in two stable (and several unstable) allotropes, one gray and one yellow, but is more usually found in nature as the sulfide or oxide. The elemental form is used to form alloys of metals (especially lead), and semiconductors are made from crystals of gallium arsenide (GaAs). Arsenious oxide (arsenic trioxide or white arsenic, As2O3), is used in pesticides, as a pigment, and as a preservative of hides and wood; this is the poisonous "arsenic" (see arsenic poisoning) in detective stories. Arsenic pentoxide (As2O5) is also used in insecticides, herbicides, metal adhesives, and pigments.

Arsenic \Ar*sen"ic\, a. (Chem.)
Pertaining to, or derived from, arsenic; -- said of those
compounds of arsenic in which this element has its highest
equivalence; as, arsenic acid.

Arsenic \Ar"se*nic\ ([aum]r"s[-e]*n[i^]k; 277), n. [L.
arsenicum, Gr. 'arseniko`n, 'arreniko`n, yellow orpiment,
perh. fr. 'arseniko`s or better Attic 'arreniko`s masculine,
'a`rrhn male, on account of its strength, or fr. Per.
zern[=i]kh: cf. F. arsenic.]
1. (Chem.) One of the elements, a solid substance resembling
a metal in its physical properties, but in its chemical
relations ranking with the nonmetals. It is of a
steel-gray color and brilliant luster, though usually dull
from tarnish. It is very brittle, and sublimes at 356[deg]
Fahrenheit. It is sometimes found native, but usually
combined with silver, cobalt, nickel, iron, antimony, or
sulphur. Orpiment and realgar are two of its sulphur
compounds, the first of which is the true arsenicum of the
ancients. The element and its compounds are active
poisons. Specific gravity from 5.7 to 5.9. Atomic weight
75. Symbol As.

2. (Com.) Arsenious oxide or arsenious anhydride; -- called
also {arsenious acid}, {white arsenic}, and {ratsbane}.
