Paracetic acid
    #2177319 - 12/14/03 06:38 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Paracetic acid is what is used in laboratories to sterilize the inside of a chamber because it's really, really strong, but at like a 2% concentration it breaks down completely in 1 hour. Just make a 2% solution, spray into the chamber through a little opening which you can close, close the opening and wait like an hour or two.

I'm trying to incorporate this idea into a glovebox. JUST WATCH OUT -- the stock solution has to be like 35%, in an amber bottle, otherwise it will break down, and a 35% solution WILL burn your eyes and your respiratory tract, etc. I would think if I had a fan blowing outside and did everything in front of the fan it would be an o.k. makeshift chemical hood....

Any comments? Thanks!

more safety precautions need to be noted. always add the acid to your dilutant, dilutant to the acid can prove dangerous.
