How to prepare thimerosal solution - (Oct/23/2007 )

Hi all,

I've searched the internet for a rough idea of how to prepare thimerosal solution and failed miserably to get certain info. I've got to know that thimerosal are normally dissolved in purified water and its decomposition is accelerated in the presence of NaCl (so have to avoid NaCl in stock solution). However, I have no idea how the solution is kept. Can it be kept at RT, or for long term storage, at what temperature is suitable?

Many thanks.

Dear moderators, is it possible to add a subforum for "solution preparation"?
