I still have some dry chemicals from the early 80's in plastic jars but with metal lids - they have held up very well, so again for now, I'm just going to use the mason jar lids.
I have two jars of phenidone. One is glass and the contents are still good after 4o years. The other is plastic and the contents terned to black tar in less than a year. Glass is best for storing chemicals. Developers and other solution should not be mixed in the darkroom. Nor for that matter should raw chemicals be stored there. So glass is really not a problem.
