Dear everyone,
THF is the most dangerous peice of equipement. THF still that runs dry leaves behind solid peroxides that explode immediatley sparking the vapour accumulated in the fumehood...
i heard about many explosion resulting of still THF without care...but i haven't heard of any resulting of cooling it down !....

Thank you

Jinane Chaaban
