Hello all,
I have recently gotten a question from a group who makes dosimeters,
regarding hazards involving Lithium Fluoride. They work with the power
form and have concerns about its toxicity, specifically teratogenic
effects. Does anyone know if this is really a hazard, at what
quantities it might be a hazard, and if any lab safety equipment such
as hoods, is required for its use?
Any help would be appreciated.
