  6. What is the W classification of Product 221678, Raney®-Nickel - W.R. Grace and Co. Raney®2800, slurry?

    The numbers W1 through W8 were various activation treatments as part of a study conducted by Dr. Atkins at the University of Wisconsin. The publications date from 1932 to 1955. Although the commercial products of today are not processed as shown in the study, the Raney® nickels that we carry most closely match the 'W-2' form because they are all activated and stored in water.
