proper uses of hg
« on: January 08, 2003, 06:17:00 PM »
im buying hg from a company and they asked these questions "what your end use of this
product is? Regulations mandate that we know where the chemicals are going
and what they might be used for?" does anyone know? and yes i used TFSE.

Polarography use a column of Hg metal to make renewable mercury drops with constant shape from a capillary tube. We use liters of Hg for that in our labs at university.
