Just watched Bruce Willis' The Jackal. Old movie.

Anyway, there was this scene where Bruce wearing gloves, sprays a can of

"something" onto a car door handle. Moments later, a guy walks past the car, thinks that Bruce's in that car, so he tries to open the door.,Soon as he touches the door handle with his bare hands, he realises there was "something" on it. He desperately tries to rub it off on his pants. But, after a few seconds (3-5seconds) he convulsed, choked and died.

What was that "something"? At first, I thought it was mercury, but the blood-poisoning effect of mercury upon skin contact would take at least a few hours., not seconds. Toxicology experts here please help.
