lithium carbonate

From:"Cohen, Mary Ann"

  Hi all,

My question is,  for an H&E stain when making up your lithium carbonate
solution after your Hematox dip, I am using a saturated aqueous lithium
carbonate solution with 1 gram of lithium into 100 ml of  ( this is the
question ) do I use distilled H2O, or 100 % EtOH?  If my memory serves me
after many years of working in the lab and smelling all of the chemicals,  I
would use EtOH,   is this correct.

I would appreciate your comments.

Food for thought,  I do not want to use pre-made clarifier.
