Subject: Ethylene Oxide use in a research lab?
Good afternoon Group,


I have a researcher who wishes to use ethylene oxide in a lab, to
synthesis a compound.  We need to purchase 500ml of ethylene oxide.  His
planned synthesis will be using 15ml at a time to synthesize this


My questions for the group:


1)     Is anyone allowing the use of this material?

2)     What safety precautions or procedures are you having your
researches use?

3)     What regulatory hoops do we have to jump through if any for this


You may send a response to my e-mail below!


Thanks for any help.


John B
