Expert needed[edit]

There is indeed a need for an expert on this subject, because the details given here are the older notion of oxidising agent. The modern day view is not given here. thunderboltz

From smokefoot[edit]

What exactly do you recommend? I revised this article significantly a couple of weeks ago. There's a comment in there that permanganate will not reduce by manganate. It does. One can also reduce OsO4 by one electron using I-. etc. I am an expert in redox agents.Smokefoot 15:00, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Ok then. Removing attention of expert tag. Thank you! thunderboltz 06:51, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

Dangerous goods[edit]

How about a section that says it's classified as a dangerous goods/hazardous material, and how to transport it (e.g. cannot be transported together with class 3 and 4 DG).

  • I agree, please make a section of this.-- Penubag  04:51, 24 April 2007 (UTC)


Is it really necassary to have so many images of the same sign? One would suffice for me. We could keep just the orange sign, and maybe the .svg version of the yellow one, but three is just excessive. BeefRendang 09:59, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
