    While doing some research last night...

    ...I found another chemical that I hope I never come across.


    Li3N. Lithium nitride. This crap pretty much reacts with every class of chemical. Hell, it's even AIR reactive!


    Then you have ethylene oxide. That stuff is just pure fun.

    Is it as much fun as coming across an open five gallon can of ether on a raid?

    Now that's fun!

    That would be fun!


    Jenna, every now and then we are assigned some chemicals to research. We have to find out what they are, what they can do, all of their properties, how far to evacuate, what to use if a fire is involved and what kind of suit we will need to work in the hot zone.

    It keeps our minds fresh and keeps us current on all the resources available to us.

    Some food products are treated with ethylene oxide to lower the potential bacteria count.

    If this is the only thing I've done to put me on the watch list, I'd be surprised!

    If you are talking about the emergency response guide, yes. However it doesn't give US all the information WE might need.

    For the cop or FD rolling up on scene, the ERG will give them enough info to do what they need to do. Which is stay the hell away.

    You're welcome!


    Ethylene oxide sterilization is preferred over irradiation by many manufacturers in those cases where sterilization is needed.
