Re: disposal of mercury
|From:||David Pereira <PereirD@war.wyeth.com>|
There is a method in AFIP Laboratory Methods in Histotechnology by Edna B. Prophet, et al. on page 26 using thioacetamide to precipitate mercuric chloride. Its a rather lengthy procedure but it may be worth your while if you are having a problem with disposing of mercuric chloride solutions.

I have a question. Is there anyway of reducing/neutralizing mercury
fixatives (specifically B5), so that it can be poured down the drain? I
know that I have seen this discussion before, but because I need the
information I can't find it anywhere.
