The recent threads on oxidizing agents reminded me that I have an
almost empty bottle of an unknown oxidizer that I purchased
pre-1980. It still works very well (deep black immediately on warm
metal) and I’d like to buy more, if I can figure out what it is.
The oxidizer is a light greenish-yellow, clear liquid. Its viscosity
is similar to water. No sulfur odor.
The paper label has flaked apart, but originally was a white and
yellow strip that encircled the brown glass jar with a black lid.
What’s left on the label is a re-order #52-734A or #52-736; product
of Hammel, Riglander & Co…
The hazard warning on it includes avoiding breathing the vapor and
contact with skin, eyes and clothing. If taken internally, swallow
salt to induce vomiting. Keep patient warm and call physician.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
