I purchased a prescription pair of safety glasses from Lens Crafters with side shields. I wear them whenever I am in the lab which is really all day. I know they are cheaper (and goggles are available as well) online.

Things I Won't Work With: Selenophenol
Posted by Derek
This fine reagent was mentioned here (disparagingly) in the comments the other day, and I knew that it was time to add it to the list. I've had some other selenium entries before, and they're all here for the same reason: their unsupportable stenches. Everyone, even people who've never had a chemistry class in their lives, knows that sulfur compounds are stinky, of course, but it's a problem that continues as you move down Group XVI of the periodic table.

HARMFUL chemicals including hydrochloric and sulphuric acid were left in an Ammanford factory — creating a high risk for people living nearby.

The Environment Agency Wales (EAW) removed some 500 containers and five chemical lagoons at the former electroplating facility, the exact location of which has not been disclosed.

Kimberley Ekin-Wood, from the EAW, said: "This site posed a high risk to both the local environment and people living in the area so removing the chemicals had to be a priority."

The factory has been empty for several years.

The EAW, alerted by the fire service found the previous landowners had left it full of waste chemicals. These included hydrochloric acid, chromic acid, sulphuric acid and sodium hydroxide.

LSB Industries said its El Dorado chemical facility in Arkansas suffered significant damage to the DSN concentrated nitric acid plant and surrounding equipment when a reactor exploded Tuesday morning.

There were no injuries to employees or anyone in the El Dorado community, the company said, adding that it believes there was no environmental release.

LSB is investigating the cause of the event and the extent of the damages, it said.

LSB said it does not have an estimate on the extent of the damages or the repair time. However, the El Dorado facility is out of operation at the present time due to the damage.

Lightning appparently ignited a fuel tank at Dow Chemical Co. in Croydon early this morning, touching off a three-alarm blaze that sent a large orange ball of flame into the predawn sky.

Firefighters from around the area rushed to the large plant at Routes 413 and State Road in Bucks County, less than a mile from the Burlington-Bristol bridge. The county's hazardous waste material team was also called to the scene,

The fire erupted at about 4 a.m. A large black plume of smoke extended high into the sky above the orange flames. Firefighters battled the blaze not only with water, but with foam.

Robert Miller, 49, of Linden Street in Bristol, said he was awoken by a large noise and was not sure if it was thunder or something else.

"The minute it stopped" he said, referring to the thunder or explosion, "the fire alarm went off immediately. The sirens went off like crazy - like I've never heard them before."

HOLLYWOOD — A four-block stretch of A1A in Hollywood reopened Monday night after being closed much of the day while HazMat units and the bomb squad tried to remove a chemical-filled 55-gallon drum that washed ashore over the weekend.

The day-long effort to remove the drum became complicated in the afternoon when the drum broke apart and appeared to detonate, spewing white smoke, Hollywood fire department officials said. The Broward Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad was called.

The mysterious drum was finally carted away for proper disposal before 9 p.m. and the roadway reopened.

What chemical the drum contained is unknown pending test results.

"People drop off a little homemade explosive device in the front yard, yeah it's kind of scary ," she said, flipping through pictures on her camera.

Patsy Brown and her husband woke up to find the remnants of a bottle bomb outside their front door on Mother's Day.

"As you can see here, the water bottle just exploded, and the foil exploded in about a 15-20 foot radius," she said, showing us a melted bottle and foil pellets.

The bomb consists of a plastic bottle filled with an unknown chemical liquid and aluminum foil. The concoction is commonly known as a Works Bomb. It exploded while the family was away from home on Saturday night.

GUANGZHOU, CHINA (BNO NEWS) -- A large explosion ripped through a steel plant in southern China on Monday afternoon, killing nine people and injuring several others, state-run media reported.

The explosion occurred at around 3:48 p.m. local time at a plant operated by Shaoguan Steel Co. Ltd. in the municipality of Shaoguan in China's southern province of Guangdong. It happened as workers from China MCC5 Group Corp. were installing facilities at the location.

The state-run Xinhua news agency cited local government officials as saying that eight people died at the scene, while a ninth victim died late on Monday evening. Six workers were injured, including one person who remains seriously injured.

The cause of the explosion remains unknown, but investigations have already been launched.

The rapid economic growth in China, in combination with poor safety measures, frequently result in deadly industrial accidents. In late February, thirteen people were killed and 43 others were injured when a blast ripped through a chemical plant in China's northern Hebei province.

UNION TOWNSHIP | Authorities said a home in the Shorewood Forest subdivision was damaged Saturday after two household chemical bombs exploded on the lawn.

A 56-year-old woman told Porter County Sheriff's Department investigators that she and her husband were awoken by a "thud" outside their home about 12:30 a.m. in the 400 block of Westchester Circle.

About an hour later, they heard another noise they thought was possibly their cat knocking something off a table. The woman said they looked around the house, didn't see anything abnormal and went back to bed.

That morning, though, they discovered a window facing the front yard was shattered and areas of their lawn had burn marks next to two plastic bottles.

Authorities said they believe one of the bottles was thrown at the window and and it appears both bottles were used to create a bomb-like device using household cleaners.

Officers said the family initially wondered if they had been targeted because of their Muslim faith. On Monday, Sgt. Larry LaFlower, public information officer with the sheriff's department, said investigators found nothing leading them to believe the vandalism was a possible hate crime.

CHEMICAL EXPLOSION AT CSU INJURES PHD STUDENT http://www.9news.com/news/article/267981/222/Chemical-explosion-at-CSU-injures-PhD-student
Tags: us_CO, laboratory, explosion, injury, fluorine

FORT COLLINS - A PhD student was injured in an explosion at a lab in the CSU chemistry building this morning while working with fluorine potassium chloride and water, according to Colorado State University spokesman Mike Hooker.

A vial of liquid exploded, and the student was taken to Medical Center of the Rockies for treatment.

"He was cut by the glass from that vial," Hooker said, adding that he hasn't yet confirmed other injuries.

The incident occurred shortly before 10 a.m., and the scene was deemed to be safe enough not to stage an evacuation. CSU Environmental Health Services cleaned up the chemicals.

Hooker said he didn't yet know what occurred with the compounds to cause the explosion.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A fire with flames 100 to 200 feet high erupted Friday at an oil well east of Cheyenne owned by SM Energy.

The fire at 1781 County Road 136 started in an oil treater containing 20 to 250 gallons of an oil and water mixture, Laramie County Fire District 2 spokesman Lew Simpson said. The treater overflowed and was ignited.

An oil treater removes sediment and water from crude oil before it is transported to refineries.

"It ignited, and it was threatening about 42,000 gallons of other oil fuel stored nearby," Simpson said. "We managed to control it — we shut off the fuel to the fire."

About 60 firefighters responded to the scene from several agencies, including six Laramie County fire districts, the Torrington Fire Department and F.E. Warren Air Force Base. Firefighters from the local Frontier Oil refinery also helped out.

The fire was extinguished in about an hour. No injuries were reported.

I think inserts could work OK in goggles. I've had them in wrap-around safety glasses. You'd still having the fogging issue that all chemical goggle wearers share, and a slightly more annoying cleaning procedure. I'm sure I've seen these for sale, but can't find a source just now. Here's a site that offers prescription inserts for goggles, but I'm not certain if they are available for chemical splash resistant goggles as opposed to "tactical" goggles. http://www.trispeceyegear.com/products/goggle-spectacle-rx-inserts/

Subject: Re: Prescription chemical splash goggles

Safety Goggles do not have presciption lens because of the distance from the eye lens. Many companies make safety gogles that fit over presciption glasses. The presciption glasses should be made of impact resistant lens and frames that are worn under the goggles. There are tree types of safety goggles; v ented, semi-vented and non- vented. Requirements of which type of safety goggle to be used is generally spelled out in most MSDS's, the new SDS's or by OSHA regulation. The vented are less likely to fog but offer the least safety. THe non-vented will definitely fog up over time but they make an anti-fogging solutions which can be applied to the goggle lens to reduce the fogging and lenghten the where time of the goggles. One other note is continued use and long term use of non-vented goggles is not good for your eyes. The lack of ventilation can and may cause damage to your eyeballs. If long term use of protect is needed for the work you do, I suggest !
the use of a full face respiration with inserts, full-face supplied air system with inserts, or a PAPR with safey glasses under the hood or face-shield.

According to that link, the OVR-G glasses do not provide chemical splash protection-only projectiles and dust.
We wear goggles for all our laboratory and outdoor work. There are a number of over the glasses goggles, I wear the XTR monogoggle by Jackson Safety ( http://www.jacksonsafety.com/linkdetails.cfm?groupid=3010334 ). It looks like a scuba mask (blue), but is very comfortable and fits over large glasses. Another style a lot of folks like is the Radians Cloak safety goggles which work well with slightly smaller glasses (http://www.radians.com/main/p-36-radians-cloak-dual-mold-goggle.aspx ). Another is Sperian UVEX Stealth (http://www.uvex.us/uploadedFiles/ProductConfiguration/ProductLiterature/Uvex_Stealth_OTG_DS_3pg.pdf ), although it seems like that one worked best with smaller glasses. The Honeywell website shows that they have a UVEX goggle that comes in a variety of magnifications-1.0-3.0 diopter. ( http://www.honeywellsafety.com/Products/Uvex/Eye_and_Face_Protection/Uvex_Stealth%c2%ae_Reader.aspx?site=/americas )
We have found that for a comfortable fit, it's best to have a variety of styles, since there are so many different facial shapes and glasses to cover. The goggles that are designed to be OTG's (Over-the-Glasses) have a slot for the side arms of the glasses to go in so they don't dig into your temple. Where the nosepiece for the glasses and goggle hit also affects comfort, so a different brand of OTG may do the trick.

I wear glasses but the safety glasses I listed are the best. Very comfortable. I found mine on sale locally for $1.50.

I think inserts could work OK in goggles. I've had them in wrap-around safety glasses. You'd still having the fogging issue that all chemical goggle wearers share, and a slightly more annoying cleaning procedure. I'm sure I've seen these for sale, but can't find a source just now. Here's a site that offers prescription inserts for goggles, but I'm not certain if they are available for chemical splash resistant goggles as opposed to "tactical" goggles. http://www.trispeceyegear.com/products/goggle-spectacle-rx-inserts/

I've had a request to find a supplier for prescription chemical splash goggles. The requestor finds goggles over spectacles uncomfortable. Would inserts actually work (they are a pain in the neck, literally)?

Ideas?

Subject: dry butyl lithium

Hi everyone,
I have a question that I'm surprised I cannot get an answer to through the normal channels.
We did a small lab cleanout this week and discovered a bottle of butyl lithium, 1.6M solution in hexanes. The hexane is completely dried up.
We've left it in the lab for now. But need to move it to our central waste storage site soon.

Is there a problem with transporting this material across campus?

If it was my duty, I would submerse the bottle (small sizeSˇwhat is the
volume quoted on the bottle) in silicone oil prior to transport.

Transporting it outside can be a major boo-boo.

I am sure there are others who have other options.
