Re: Metallic smell
I've seen the oil answer (in the link) before, but it doesn't explain why, after doing the displacement of copper by iron filings, the same sort of smell rapidly develops on the copper. Unless there are machine oils left on the iron filings that give similar decomposition products? Also, we should add OsO4 to the list of metal compounds with odours. Leonard.
