If you are interested in learning the approach we are taking at Yale with respect to handling pyrophoric liquids (and specifically organolitium compounds), you can take a look at the training program we have put together [link below] .  We are (for the most part) consistent with the procedures found in Sigma Aldrich's technical documents but more restrictive in some areas and slightly less in others.  We have tried to address the safety issues in a very practical way.   If you have any comments on our approach (or our training program), feel free to contact Cathy King, Paula Castagna or myself.
