  1. General safety PSA for those looking to replicate or are curious, Dow Chemical mentions some risk [here.](https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://msdssearch.dow.com/PublishedLiteratureDOWCOM/dh_0911/0901b8038091111f.pdf%3Ffilepath%3D/noreg%26fromPage%3DGetDoc&ved=2ahUKEwjWqu_q7LbhAhVC2oMKHSVtAA44ChAWMAd6BAgBEAE&usg=AOvVaw3IrioEnjI4uR36ovIw6IAc)

    “Deny any unnecessary entry into the
    area. Use water spray or fog, carbon-dioxide or dry-chemical extinguishers, or foam to fight the fire. Use of a direct water stream
    may spread the fire and will produce flammable materials as the product hydrolyzes. Toxic vapors may be produced when this
    product is heated or burned.”

    “Inhalation of vapor or mist may cause irritation of the nose, throat, and lungs, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness,
    drowsiness, and lack of coordination.”

    Definitely do this in a well ventilated area. Otherwise, this is a really cool lab demonstration, and should be handled like any other lab chemical; with care.
