Explosion with Co(NH3)6 Cl3 CAS: 10534-89-1
An aqueous recrystallization solution (100 ml) of the product was stored
in a frigo-box during a few days. When the laboratory technician took it
out, a violent explosion occured in his hands.
Has somebody an explanation or information on such an accident?
many thanks
claude
