The trouble with sodium barbital, of course, is that (since it's a
barbiturate) it's a controlled substance, and requires special
handling procedures (including locking it up). Chloral hydrate and
paraldehyde have the same problem.

I would think that either an acetate buffer or one of the "Good
buffers" (see the Sigma catalog) could be substituted.
