The program is divided into six major tasks consisting of: Defining adequate waste management; Evaluating presently employed waste management techniques or policies and making recommendations as to adequacy; Performing field surveys and verification experiments on existing management procedures; Defining, planning and outlining research programs where necessary for elimination of hazards; Conducting proof-of-principle experimentation on the most promising concepts; and Correlating total program effort. During the last month first draft profile reports for 45 compounds were completed. 37 compounds were scheduled. The reports completed during June are as follows: ammonium fluoride, ammonium bifluoride, potassium fluoride, potassium bifluoride, sodium fluoride, sodium bifluoride; antimony pentafluoride and antimony trifluoride; barium compounds: barium carbonate, barium chloride, barium cyamide, barium nitrate, barium sulfide; benzyl chloride; diborane, tetraborane, pentaborane-9, pentaborane-11, hexaborane, decarborane; calcium arsenite, copper aceloarsenite, lead arsenite, potassium arsenite, zinc arsenite; chloropicrin; chrome; chromic acid; 2,4-D; dinitro cresol; ethylene bromide, methyl bromide, methyl chloride; hydrazine; hydrocyanic acid, hydrogen cyanide; mercuric cyanide; nitrochlorobenzene; nitrogen mustards; sodium azide; tetraethyl and tetramethyl lead.
