Splashed Potassium Dichromate Solution

  1. Mar 7, 2012 #1
    Yesterday in a school lab experiment, I accidentally splashed a really small amount of potassium dichromate solution (0.02000mol/L) on my hand. By "small amount," I mean a tiny drop that can't even visibly "run" due to gravity.
    Of course, I washed it off right after for a good amount of time. But am I still in any danger at all because of it? And are there any symptoms I should be aware of in case I got infected? I just wanted to make sure.

    You are perfectly safe. Your main problem at the moment is that you bother yourself with thinking you may have a problem. And I am deadly serious.
