Back when I was at Stanford, there used to be a newspaper clipping
posted outside the SNF gowning room about a cleanroom fire which
burned a whole building to the ground. As I recall, the fire was
caused by pouring solvents into a beaker with traces of nitric acid
left in it. Does anyone know if the clipping is still around, or
where I could find a reference to the fire? I'm training young
generations of grad students who could benefit from basic safety
rules of acids and organics.
