RE: Picric Acid
Sorry, It was the only place in town that they
could safely do it. They did it in a back corner where no one was buried
and no one complained. The picric acid was found in an old supply cabinet
and had completely dried out. I guess most people felt it was better to
blow it up in the cemetery where no one could get hurt than risk killing
someone. Sorry you were so offended but the acid was permanently disposed
of without environmental damage or risks of it forming a more hazardous
substance. I assure you, no body living or dead, was hurt in the
I find that extremely

- Hi fellow histonetters,
- Does anyone know a way of neutralizing picric acid crystals? I know
adding water will make it no longer a explosion hazard...but our lab
safety officer seems to think
- that there is a way of actually neutralizing.
- Any input would be greatly appreciated.
