A particulate mask will not afford any protection against NOx.

Let me reiterate--this stuff will steal your breath.

Yes, my lab is in my house. Yes, I mess with NO2 generating things. That being said, I:

a) "grease" my joints with H2SO4 (<<Lazy with bbcode)

b) clamp everything well to my frame, making sure that all joints are tight and sealed

c) have the heating mantle on a labjack so i can lower it quickly

d) vent the apparatus OUTSIDE.

e) use a equalizing dropping funnel to add my H2SO4 to the nitrates

f) make sure I HAVE A CLEAR PATH OUT THE DOOR if something should go south

And remember, NITRILE gloves are worse than useless around nitric acid.

I am aware. That is why I am using a fan even when I am outdoors now. It worked before. I just finished my first batch of hydrazine sulfate and it worked also quite well. I should have done all neutralization on my balcony as well.
