Destruction of hazardous chemicals in the laboratory
Like its groundbreaking predecessor, this Second Edition of Destruction of Hazardous Chemicals offers a collection of detailed procedures that can be used to degrade and dispose of a wide variety of hazardous chemicals. The book has been expanded and updated to broaden the scope of chemicals treated and to include new and modified procedures and alternatives to the use of some highly toxic materials. Entirely new chapters have been added on the removal of metal ions and biological stains from solution and the degradation of mycotoxins, enzyme inhibitors, polycyclic heterocyclic hydrocarbons, and highly reactive reagents such as butyllithium, chlorosulfonic acid, peracids, and phosgene. Another new chapter covers the alternatives to complex metal hydrides in the preparation of super-dry solvents. A new appendix by Dr. Stephen W. Rhodes describes new technologies for the treatment of complex waste streams produced by biomedical research institutions. The procedures described are applicable to both laboratory and bulk quantities, and to solutions in various solvents. Methods for cleaning up spills and solvents for wipe tests to ensure complete surface decontamination are frequently indicated. For laboratory scientists and workers concerned with occupational and environmental safety, this book provides easy reference with a listing of hazardous compounds indexed by name, molecular formula, and CAS registry number. For laboratory administrators, it offers economical alternatives to long-term storage and costly shipping of hazardous chemicals to disposal facilities.
