Dear list

I was wondering if anyone is using a vacuum chamber after soaking meteorites
in alcohol to dry them. I made some tests and it seems to work well.
I use a lab vacuum pump and my chamber is a dedicated for meteroites
aluminium pressure cooker ! Not the one I use for couscous, of course.

A vacuum chamber is used to metalize sections for the MEB. I am then
thinking that vacuum does not harm meteorites.

Thanks for any reply

best regards
