Lab Day - Aqua Regia

After the initial hype and buildup surrounding the preparation, use, and disposal  of aqua regia, I was disappointed by how innocuous the actual process was.  No horrific burns.  No screams of pain.  To an observer it would have looked as if we were carefully pipetting water into test tubes. Alas, the aqua regia component of lab is complete, and soon we'll be off to the ICP-MS!
