hey Yung!

I managed to find a couple of patents that are in this area and were issued to

MicroCoating Technologies, Inc.
5315 Peachtree Industrial Blvd.
Atlanta GA 30341
United States

Here's the link to one of the patents (once opened, search on chromium)--no idea if they are actually using this process with SCF now--in patents typically a rather wide (but related) area is claimed

...but maybe their EH&S folks can be of some assistance. Good luck!! You have a great summer too!!

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.
