Información bibliográfica Drawing Office Material Manufacturers and Dealers Association (DOMMDA), 52-55 Carnaby Street, London W1V 1PF, United Kingdom, 1978. 23p. Illus. Price: £1.25.
Resumen This guide is issued so that agreed rules with a view to controlling the hazards in handling diazo chemicals may be adopted in photocopying and that chemical manufacturers supplying the reprographic industry may achieve uniformity of methods of packaging and labelling acceptable to, and understood by, users. Definitions are followed by sections devoted to: nature and degree of hazard (light sensitivity, flammability when exposed to heat, possible formation of explosive vapour/air mixtures); safe practice recommendations and precautions; transport. Appendices: chemical structure of diazo compounds; a practical method of assessing degree of hazard; methods of determining the propagation of decomposition, once initiated; list of diazo compounds preferably held in diluted form; list of substances which may effectively reduce hazard when used as diluents; diazo compounds which are considered to be safe in storage without diluent admixture.
