    What is the most dangerous experiment you have ever conducted?

    I didn’t like working daily with gamma-radiating sodium-22, especially not when I dropped the container…

    Ok, not chemistry, but involving chemicals! At university I was working on measuring droplet sizes for sprays pumped into vacuum chambers. The purpose of this was to find an ideal nozzle for a laser based plasma system. The laser we were using was a mere 4W and given its open beam and the fact that it was green made it a pretty dangerous beastie to work with. What made it doubly dangerous was the fact that the liquid we were pumping into the vacuum chamber was ethanol, and it was being injected using high pressure nitrogen that would sometimes pop the top off our ethanol canister, launching ethanol vapour into the room. Add to the danger by this being a typical university basement lab in which ventilation is something that happens somewhere else, and there we were operating a high powered laser in a room saturated with ethanol vapour, getting increasingly inebriated as time went by! Fun times.

    Oh no!!!!

    I once was a participant in an experiment in which they injected me with flourescent dye. Was peeing yellow markers for a full day afterwards.

    The aim was to test for reaction to gluten of the stomach / duodenum lining. Had to eat completely gluten free for three months before and keep a food diary. Then they went in with an endoscope and applied gluten directly on tbe mucosa. For some reason they needed the fluorescent dye.

    When working in the security sector, engineering a device to detect explosives, we tested the device at Shrivenham with real explosives, which we subjected to forms of stress that I wasn’t sure had been done before! Small amounts, but still…

      ?? Explosives are always scary! Especially since the experts are generally completely insane and never seem to take the situation seriously….

    Ah I was comfortable with these experts. Cranfield University in Shrivenham is the UK department of defence university and they were very serious about safety.

    Also we had to have a safety drill first. There were two audible alarms; one to tell you to gtfo asap and the other to tell you to close all windows and stay inside. But one day the alarm went off and noone knew whether to stay or go! ?
