Subject: RE: [DCHAS-L] Chemical Safety headlines from Google

> Jyllian Kemsley at C&EN says the following: (one correction: the student was working with cobalt perchlorate hydrazinate, not cobalt hydroxide)

This mixed anion salt is in the class of =93heavy metal perchlorates=94 and in the class of =93heavy metal hydrazinates=94.  Both classes have known, documented shock and friction sensitivity.  Elsevier=92s HazMat Navigator states (for a closely related chemical)


It explodes at 325=B0C; high impact-sensitivity


And, there is much more to the story - read Jyllian=92s blog - she has again done very well.
