Subject: Fumehoods vs. gloveboxes
Comments: cc: "Giering, Paul"

Dear List Members,

I am interested in finding guidance for using the appropriate ventilation
In particular, what LD50, and/or vapor pressure would make a particular
substance too dangerous for use in a laboratory fumehood and need to be
handled in a more isolated fashion, such as in a glovebox?

Can you suggest a resource that might contain this type of information?
