Hey my fellow chemists, I've got a huge problem and need some information as soon as possible. I'm working in a Lab in Namibia, the Laboratory is being renovated at some places (quite an old building). I came accross a picric acid bottle, which already have some crystals underneath the lid. The lid is a screw cab (Don't know who thought of that!!). Anyway, I brought this under my Lab-manager's attention about a month ago, and nothing is arranged yet. The bottle is still there!! I want to know, how do you neutralize that crystals under the lid. It's an explosive hazard and I want that bottle removed! Nobody seems to care around here!! Nobody seems to see the danger of the situation. Please, if anybody can help me, it will be much appreciated.
