Los Alamos National Laboratory management learned last week that two employees apparently suffered work-related injuries in June.
A lab statement on Tuesday said two postdocs had inhaled "aqua regia," a mixture of nitric and hydrochloric acids, on June 16, while working at the laboratory. One of them was hospitalized for six days in July.
The incident is now under investigation.
