Dear members,


One of our researchers would like to add hexacarbonyl Chromium as a precursor  for his work with supercritical fluid. Do you know of any other university or industry using the same method I can ask?  Any safety precaution to add beside a fume hood, safety glasses, body shield, face shield ? He had used CO2 as a precursor  before with no issue. Chromium does make me nervous however.  Any thoughts or suggestions you have are welcome.


Thank you. Enjoy your Summer.
