    The ampules I work with are pre-scored. I thought they all were. You can just snap the tops off with your fingers.

    Luckily they didn't ever have to handle organic mercury, even your gloves won't save you if a drop gets on you.

    Anything containing heavy metals bonded to organic groups is really nasty. Combusts in air/water, corrosive, explosive oxides, biopersistent, very deadly to fish and sealife, highly toxic and cancerogenic, the whole package

    For me it was this 100 litre drum of methanol, inside a room-sized fume cupboard, I had to connect it to earth and pour it into a large beaker then pour that into the 50 litre reactor through a funnel.

    Cyclopentadienyl nickel nitrosyl was patented as a anti knocking fuel additive, but it was never used due to the health hazards it posed, so we got tetraethyl lead instead. :/
