Solvents - central scotland

I'm clearing out a lab that is closing down. There are some solvents that have to be disposed of - some of which may be of use to those of you with blow up boats needing patches! They're in glass bottles so not going to be practical/affordable to transport to anyone who isn't in the Edinbugh/Glasgow/Stirling/Fife sort of area.

If theres no takers I'll probably end up storing them at home for 'odd jobs round the house' but as I've no garage I'd be quite happy to see the flamable solvents put to use elsewhere rather than lurking in my kitchen cupboard!

So there is 0.5 L Acetone and 0.75 L Toluene sitting here which should be of use.

I also have 2L of Methanol and 0.75L of 1-propanol (note this is not IPA - its an isomer of IPA which has a much more 'oily' feel to it).

Neil, I'll take the methanol and toluene off you please ifn you can hold it until I'm out your way. I'm there fairly frequently. On the basis that if you don't ask, you don't get and since it's a lab, I could do with an empty glass container to hold H2 SO4, something above 2lts would be good, glass stopper preferred.

Ta.

Just thought, I can likely have the solvents collected to get them out of your way.

Jeff, Consider them yours. There is some glassware (nothing with a glass stopper - and I think its mostly 1L flasks/bottles) - but it may have some residual value (?) so will depend how its being disposed of. The solvents in contrast will actually cost to dispose of. If the glassware is going in the skip I'll give you a shout.

PM me next time you're passing Linlithgow and I'll give you details.
