(Hummm, we don't really have a category for this so we'll try "techniques"....)
I posted this on another (smaller) board but I know we have a wealth of scientific knowledge here so I thought I might reach more knowledgable folks by posting here.
I am planning to get into wet plate collodion (See, it IS LF related!) and I was reading about ethel ether and its propensity to form peroxides once the container has been opened and the contents exposed to air. The peroxides of ether are listed as a primary explosive. 8-O
Are there any chemists in the house who can speak scientifically on the storage of ether and the prevention of peroxides?
