RE: [Histonet] COBr2

From:"Monson, Frederick "

To get information on chemicals such as "Carbonic dihydride" you should become familiar with some, if not all, of the chemical safety databases that exist online.  One of the best resources is at NIST.
Use the CAS Number = 593-95-3
and this URL:
Then choose the NIST WebBook from the frame on the left.
BTW, the stuff is a corrosive byproduct of Halon 1211 (as well as other substances) when "1211"  is used in fire fighting.  I'd love to hear its use in histochemistry.
There are some things for which a large BIG BROTHER is most useful.

	Hi histonetters,
	 A researcher has given us a protocol he found from quite a while ago
	and it calls for a chemical COBr2. The chemical name is carbonyl
	bromide. We cannot find a supplier. Does anyone know about this
