Storage of Ergotamine
« on: August 07, 2002, 07:29:00 PM »
High bees!

In my dreams someone got his Hands on 700mg of Ergotamine Tartrate - not very much, but still not bad  8)

Then he gassed the nice white powder with argon, sealed the container very well and put in into the freezer - to store it for 2-3 years without decomposition.

But then he asked himself if the -20°C in the freezer are good for the goodies, or should he put the ET into the refrigerator at ~4°C?

thanks...

Can't be too cold.

Either temp should be fine. It can't be too cold so generally you could say that colder is better. Ergotamine could even be stored at liquid nitrogen temperatures of -196 without damage.
