I recently came across a container of Samarium(-40 mesh, 99% trace metals
basis). It is unopened. It has a radioactive symbol on it. Does anyone have
any information on this material. I know it is a flammable solid. Any
thoughts on disposal would also be appreciated? Should it go out as RAM?
Anybody know what EU RAM symbol means?
