Dear List, I did a "consult" on a threat analysis, and used the Goiania incident as my inspiration-although I posited a very different delivery system and amount. Would anyone know (offhand-no research, please) the chemistry of the threat, so I can provide a good answer to their question. (I'll bet Jose' knows!)...................................Thank you, Ed
Subject: Cesium chloride



I got a question on your scenario from a reviewer. Is the cesium in the form of a powder or crystaline? What size in microns? If not 1-5 u could it be ground fine enough to be respired? Or could it be dissolved in water and sprayed as a liquid?
