I need to store some aliquots of 2,3,5-tribromothiophene. I searched for how to store reagent under inert gas, And I found this : https://avantilipids.com/tech-support/faqs/protect-from-oxidation
In summary, it says:
- aliquot the reagent as desired into vial.
- blow a gentle stream of inert gas into the vial for few seconds.
- cap and seal the vial and store in fridge.
Is this enough? Somehow I feel that this method is a little bit clumsy. Does really just blowing inert gas few seconds ensure inert atmosphere?
