Found this in one of our desiccators yesterday.


No wonder the DrieRite’s always purple.

    HA! I’m just glad it happens to somebody else, and not just me.

    Yes – I have seen this happen before. Large shared desiccators in the lab and sometimes very oddball materials placed in them. Volitle amines and other liquid reagents. In addition many of our desiccators where of the vacuum variety. Even very bright people have brain farts and don’t think sometimes.

    at least it wasn’t D20 – that one I’ve seen too many times to count.

    What do you do with storing D2O?
