GLRPPR Sector Resource: Towards an Environmentally Friendly Chemistry Laboratory: Managing Expired Chemicals

Title:
Towards an Environmentally Friendly Chemistry Laboratory: Managing Expired Chemicals

Abstract:
Full Citation: Houri, A. and H. Wehbe. 2003. "Towards an environmentally friendly chemistry laboratory: managing expired chemicals." Green Chemistry 5(3): G49-G50.

Publisher: Royal Society of Chemistry

Summary: Teaching laboratories present on a small scale many of the environmental problems facing larger commercial facilities. Teaching good practice to the chemists of the future is of vital importance to the successful implementation of the principles of green chemistry in industrial practice so devising new ways of both dealing with laboratory waste and using more environmentally friendly chemicals to teach chemistry are very important goods. Here, Ahmad Houri and Hania Wehbe from the Lebanese American University in Beirutdiscuss these issues in the context of teaching chemistry in a developing country. A detailed experimental procedure is provided for utilising an expired chemical in an undergraduate chemistry practical. Copyright 2003, Royal Society of Chemistry.
