Disposal of Osmium Tetroxide Waste
|From:||stephen asquith <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
Hi once again,
At places I've worked there have been differing protocols regarding the
disposal of this wonderful material but it still typical leaves one with
containers full of osmium in alcohol or corn oil, while this may be a safer
form what should be done with it then?
At one place I worked the alcohol/osmium solution was then mixed with
approx 100g activated charcoal /2.5litre waste, mixed and after approx 24
hours put through filter paper down the sink with plenty of water the
filter papers collected and stored into a sealed container. This was then
sent to a disposal firm.
I'm interested to know what others are doing and also what people think of
the above .
