Don't you just love the ambiguity of "shorter" versus "longer"
time periods? I haven't used the Neu 9100 but, having used the"old" 9100,
I have found that I can leave the destabilized monomer in the refrigerator
at 4C for a year. I haven't tried freezing, but I would think that would
hold indefinitely. The thing to remember is that both frozen and
refrigerated solutions should be allowed to come to room temp before using
as the solutions will have a condensate on the inside of the jar that
doesn't mix well with the monomer.
Also, I filter my solutions and reuse as needed;however for the
final infiltration and embedding solution, I always use fresh monomer. Any
remaining fresh monomer can be filtered and stored as "used"solution and
can be used for base layers and "first-step" infiltration solutions thus
recycling the solution with little waste.
