For what it is worth for a RCRA determination, there is mention of it in this book, "Handbook of Stable Isotope Analytical Techniques Vol II, By Pier A. de Groot" found at the URL below. It mentions what John noted CuO, used as a "anti-pest agent in agriculture". That may have some meaning if the PI worked with pesticides/agriculture areas. Do a Hazard Characterization too as you'd do for unknowns.

Ralph--have you tried calling the company (if they still exist)? Generally they will be able to help even with an older container (if it's from the 1960's forget it, though, in my experience.)

Doing a lab clean out for a retired faculty member, we have come across a 1 pound bottle of dry powder labelled Coleman 29-103 Cuprox reagent, of an age prior to 2008 and probably older than 2000.
Google seems to indicate that this material used in analysis of water samples, but I can't find an SDS that is clearly associated with this company or an ingredient list that allows me to make a RCRA waste determination for this bottle. Does anyone have any references as to what the contents of this container are?
Thanks for any help with this.
