Re: Chromic Acid

From:Connie McManus <>

I still use it for GMS and gridley stains.  I also use to to chemically
clean my glassware.  To dispose of it, I do so just like all the other
chemicals, I call the Environmental Health and Safety Dept on campus.   I
always use nitrile gloves when using this.  Since my entire working bench
is under a hood, I don't use it under the fume hood.  BUT, if I didn't
have such a hood over my workspace, I would definitely use it only in the
fume hood.

There.  A little more than you asked for, but what the hay?  *g*
