Conflicting statements on Bhopal deaths
The main article on the Bhopal disaster mentions 3000 deaths "within weeks and another 8000" later. The beginning of this article says "nearly 8,000 people initially and approximately 17,000 people in total", and under "hazards" it says "immediately killing thousands and leading to the deaths of tens of thousands in subsequent weeks and months". Moreover, all these figures seem to come from a couple of books/essays by a Swedish doctor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:28, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
Pyridine and dimethylaniline are not tertiary amines
"The methyl isocyanate is obtained by treating the MCC with a tertiary amine (e. g.: dimethylaniline, pyridine)"
Dimethylaniline and pyridine are not tertiary amines. I dont´t know if methyl isocyanate is obtained with tertiary amines, anilines or pyridine so I will not change anything on article.
N,N-dimethylaniline is a tertiary amine. Pyridine is a cyclic amine with no hydrogen attached. The point here is that primary or secondary amines will not produce MIC in this reaction since such compounds will react with the MIC. Oldsci (talk) 03:00, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
