I would start with one of the many polymer chemical compatibility charts.
These charts rank numerous types of polymers as recommended or not recommended for use with an extensive list of chemicals.
Hope you can help. As I'm sure you know, plastic bottles commonly used as secondary containers in chemistry labs can degrade, and then leak or unexpectedly collapse releasing the contents.
Are you aware of a guideline addressing the safe use of plastic containers in chemistry labs in terms of chemical compatibility, service life, and how to evaluate condition?
