I typically buy the palladium metal salt in 100ml increments. I am
thinking of getting it next time in 500ml to get the better price
break. BTW, I ALWAYS decant a portion into small 25ml bottles for use.
I can imagine the horror of watching 100ml of the stuff fall from the
work surface onto the floor. Same sinking feeling as when a gravel
truck spewing leftovers pulls out just in front of you on the freeway.
