Courtesy of the Periodic Table of Videos, faculty and staff at the University of Nottingham discuss the most dangerous chemicals they’ve handled:
- cyclopentadienyl nickel nitrosyl, (C5H5)NiNO
- tert-butyllithium, (CH3)3CLi (yes, the same chemical that Sheri Sangji used)
- sulfur trioxide, SO3
What about you, Safety Zone readers? What do you think is most dangerous chemical you’ve handled?
Update on Wednesday, March 14: The question got a lot of responses! I collected the ones on Twitter into this Storify; blog comments are down at the bottom.
