Subject: Experience with hydrazine spills in the lab
In-Reply-To: <BC02EEA0D5E67C4185610BD0C21DB1550222CEC5**At_Symbol_Here**>
Colleagues - are you there?  I am very much interested how those of you
who have or work with hydrazine in the lab deal with any quantity of
hydrazine spills.  I would greatly appreciated if you have could share
or relate any procedures, references, or experiences for or with this
specific substance.  I am also interested in your experience with
methylhydrazine (monomethylhydrazine, MMH) and unsymmetrical
dimethylhydrazine (1,1-dimethylhydrazine, UDMH).

I would like to prepare a review paper on control and mitigation of
hydrazine (and these derivatives) spills, so any input would be most
appreciated.  I value the input of those who actually handle this fluid,
supervise those who do, are involved (or would be) with spill response,
or perhaps have some other related experience.  I am trying to capture
the widest variety of hydrazine spill control and mitigation procedures
and experiences (extending beyond my affiliations).  

Sincerely, Ben
