Main Question or Discussion Point

I need a Materials Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for a chemical called 4-Methyl-1-acetoxycalix[6]arene commonly referred to as Calixarene.

I'll be your friend if you find it for me... and if you're a girl, I'll even be your boyfriend.

Thanks.

I believe you could get it from Sigma-Aldrich, but you would have to register at their website, sigmaaldrich.com.

This is all the information I have concerning 4-Methyl-1-acetoxycalix[6]arene.

I've attempted to contact a sales representative, but no one from this company has responded to my emails.

I can talk with my Chemistry professor to see of she can get her hands on the MSDS.

You made a request for an MSDS (for your wellbeing). Aren't they, by law, required to provide you with one?

The company is in Japan, and they do have a MSDS on their website... except it's written in Japanese.

The problem is that Calixarene is a very new, state-of-the-art photoresist used for special nanotech applications. I only want the MSDS because the cleanroom manager at my school told me I can't bring this substance into the lab until I provide him with a MSDS.

Well, the Tokyo Kasei Kogyo Company finally faxed me a MSDS for Calixarene on Tuesday. I just thought I'd be fair and let everyone know that this company actually does help its customers... eventually.

Don't they have an international symbol for "Duh, I dunno..." that they could have put in there? That way you could have read the Japanese MSDS

lol, I'd wear your biohazard suit if I were you. Who knows what it does with you if every single scientist trying to find out the toxicity of this chemical died in the process :P

<sigh> we lost a lot of good chemists that way... back in the day when they used to *taste* stuff.

or poor ms. curie... zapping herself to death. :frown:
