I would like to add that the technique of using syringes in handling pyrophorics is highly ill-advised.
I metioned this in one of my posts a few years go on this topic.
Use a double-tipped cannula and transfer under Argon or Nitrogen for the source bottle. The amount of materials transferred can be determined by the loss in weight.
I just don't want to read about another syringe-based accident.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL!

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Butyl Lithium & syringe safety
I have a question from our Chem dept about nButyl Lithium & syringes after I forwarded them the CEN blog on safer syringes. http://cenblog.org/the-safety-zone/2013/02/engineering-safer-syringes/
