"If Columbia is able to test for DSS or DOSS, the chemical compound that proves Corexit 9500 is being used, then they have inside information
that the rest of us don't have. There is no way to determine if Corexit 9500 is used unless you have a list of ALL the ingredients in Corexit. The
Gov. which regulates the EPA has left off several of the chemicals that make up Corexit." I know this because all we have is the MSDS to go by. This
leaves most research scientists in the dark."
It seems you have uncovered some inside information? DOSS is not one of the chemicals listed on the MSDS, but you have had a lab state that it is the
telltale chemical that would identify Corexit.
If you have made no other progress, that particular piece is HUGE!!
I apologize for not being more connected here at FSU, but I promise to visit these guys labs the first week of fall classes, which is the 2nd or 3rd
week of August.
Maybe your inside information will spark their interest a little more. As I stated earlier, I can't believe there isn't some interest from a Grad
Student in pursuing this angle. This information, and this network of water collection is easily publishable material, and could make somebody's PhD
and somebody's career!?!?!?
