Short term question (give a woman a fish....): Does anyone know the concentration at which an acetonitrile/water mixture has a flashpoint above 141F? (From what I've found by reviewing MSDS's for products, even a 10% mixture apparently has a flashpoint around 80F...)
Longer term question (give a woman a fishing rod): Is there a sourcebook for these sorts of data/mixtures?
I have googled many different phrases today and spent an hour or more without success...
I have a PI receiving a radiolabelled compound in acetonitrile; it'll be much diluted by the time it's waste but I'd like to set a clear guideline along the lines of "At X% the material will not be considered mixed waste."
