Dear Ed:

You consult on threat analysis and are posing questions regarding the
dispersal properties of Cs-Cl on a public forum. This begs the question.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Cesium chloride

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

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?
