Green Chemical Alternatives Purchasing Wizard: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has launched a Green Chemical Alternatives Purchasing Wizard. The Wizard is a tool to reduce the generation of hazardous wastes and potential workplace exposures in research and academic laboratories. The Wizard allows the user to search from a select list of solvents commonly used in the laboratory, and the associated process. The Wizard identifies less hazardous and more environmentally benign chemicals or processes that may be substituted, and provides journal references as well as URLs to information that is available online.
- H2 Best Practices: Lab Safety
This section presents best practices for safe laboratory design and operations. It is divided into two subsections – one for designers of laboratories where hydrogen will be used and one for researchers who will actually be working with hydrogen in a laboratory setting. Links are provided to a series of topics of interest to a laboratory designer and another set of topics of interest to a laboratory researcher. Relevant references (either actual PDF files or links to materials on the Internet) are provided in the right-hand column, as well as links to lessons learned from hydrogen incidents that have occurred in the past.
- Ansell Glove Chemical Resistance Guide
Recently released 8th Edition with updated permeation and resistance data.
- ACS Hazard Assessment
The ACS has developed a website to educate chemists about fundamental concepts of hazard assessment.
