Subject: [DCHAS-L] Question on trifluoracetic acid & emergencies
From: Kim Gates <kim.gates**At_Symbol_Here**STONYBROOK.EDU>

One of the labs on campus asked about having an HF emergency kit for trifluoracetic acid use. 

I need the collective wisdom of his group - yes? no? references? (the SDS doesn't mention anything about this)
