The only similarity is that they contain mercury. Only very few thermometers will contain mercury as thermostats have a shitload and are part of an heat-sensitive electric switch. Look out for thermostats and you'll have more then you'll ever need for far less cost.

oh yeah they are frequently discarded while still in a working condition. (mercury ampules intact) as opposed to the broken rectal thermometers---- shutter-----shutter.

No, I mean heat-sensitive, as in air conditioning thermostatd, so that as the temeprature increases the mercury expands touching the two electrodes.

to utilize mercury in various formulations and to plan on obtaining it otc from thermo type devices might not be a good plan

reason--- check the various mercury compounds via Merck and you will notice a large percentage of the salts, etc are mercury. that means you gotta hava a butt load of it to fabricate the various compounds in any sort of quantity.

using thermo-whatevers is gonna take a while. so the idea that you will have more than you'll ever need will hinge on how much you need. nano-scale might be feasible but ifn you gonna get off- then maybe not.
