Here is a draft of the amended DIBROM CONCENTRATE® EC technical memorandum.
The active ingredient in DIBROM® is Naled.1. Start with the label. 2. 1 gallon of DIBROM contains 13.2 pounds of Naled. 3. Convert pounds per gallon to grams per milliliter. 4. 13.2 lbs/gallon X 453.6 grams / lb X 1 gallon / 3785 ml = 1.58 grams of Naled / ml of DIBROM. 5. Take 1 ml of DIBROM and put it in a 100 ml volumetric flask. 6. Fill to 100 ml with A.C.S. acetone. Swirl to mix. 7. This is the STOCK SOLUTION. 8. Prepare the TEST SOLUTION as follows: 9. Take 0.158 ml of the STOCK SOLUTION and put it in a 100 ml volumetric flask. 10. Fill to 100 ml with A.C.S. acetone. Swirl to mix. 11. This is the TEST SOLUTION.
Measure 1 ml of the TEST SOLUTION into each 250 ml Wheaton bottle for the bioassay.
This procedure will yield 25 micrograms of Naled in each Wheaton bottle for the bioassay.
