Kristi – I would run this one past my Occ. Health Physician, and ask to focus on the reactivity and mechanism of action for these reagents with providing a recommendation regarding the use of calcium gluconate and follow-up medical response, even for limited dermal exposures.

Is anyone else treating nucleophilic fluorination reagents in the same way as HF in terms of precautions and emergency response?  I’m not finding any data on the subject aside from recommendations to have calcium gluconate on hand in SDSs.
