Mio, Matthew J.; Benvenuto, Mark A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
The idea of a practical examination in a subject is an old and established one in many fields, within chemistry, in widely differing areas of academics, and in many on-the-job training scenarios. In a dedicated course on chemical safety, we have found that "the unsafe lab practical" makes for a thought-provoking and yet fun final…

Hunter, Kirk P.; Hill, Robert H., Jr.; Gmurczyk, Marta – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Chemical safety is a discipline that cuts across all other chemical disciplines and also impacts other laboratory sciences. It is an essential part of chemistry and continues to evolve with the science it supports. This paper provides a short background about ACS's growing involvement with chemical safety education that stems from support from ACS…

Hill, Robert H., Jr. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Numerous fires during demonstrations in secondary schools, museums, and science centers have occurred while using flammable liquids. This calls to light the need to educate undergraduate students and educators in the safe handling and use of these flammable chemicals. Understanding the benefits and risks of flammable liquids should be an essential…

Ng, Enoch Ming Wei; Song, Zhixiong; Yau, Chin Doong; Liew, Oi Wah; Ng, Tuck Wah – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
The reaction between hydrochloric acid and calcium carbonate to produce carbon dioxide gas is a popular and engaging experiment to illustrate chemical reactions that result in the production of gases. It also provides a useful model for teaching concepts related to the effects of concentration on reaction rates. Although a prepared hydrochloric…

Ngai, Eugene; Ngai, Courtney – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Academic institutions are faced with the complex problem of accurately determining the hazards associated with a proposed or ongoing project. For many reasons, compressed gas safety can be a significant challenge at universities, especially those that involve research using many uncommon materials. This article is a call to action for implementing…

Shaw, Nicholas N.; Sigmann, Samuella B.; Richard, Lyndsay B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Working with undergraduates in an organic synthesis research laboratory presents a unique set of challenges. An undergraduate research program must be designed to focus on teaching students to "think like a chemist" while advancing the principal investigator's scientific agenda. However, as novices in the laboratory, undergraduate…

Mulford, Douglas R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
The liquid nitrogen cloud demonstration is an effective, dramatic, large-scale demonstration to illustrate gas laws and cloud/fog (aerosol) formations for classes and large-scale outreach events. When performed at full scale, it is common to produce a cloud 20-30 feet in height. Its effect can be further enhanced by adding brightly colored…

Thomsen, Trine; Borre-Gude, Stefan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
In this article, a proven safety concept with documented success is presented. The concept aligns with best safety practices and the international engineering educational framework termed "The CDIO Initiative," and it has resulted in a strong safety culture among students and staff. This concept has been developed for undergraduate…

Ren, Xiaohong; Wang, Xiaoyan; Jin, Xinglong; Li, Mengting – Science & Education, 2021
Moral ethic prevails in the science and education of chemistry. These issues are unique to chemistry and arise from between the theoretical and the practical behavior in laboratory. The study reported in the paper investigated the impact of personal moral philosophies on the safety practices of students in chemistry and related majors. The results…

Redden, Patricia Ann – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
The Americans with Disabilities Act allows a student with a disability to bring a service dog into any facility where the public is allowed, including academic teaching and research laboratories. However, the presence of the service dog does have an impact on the safety of the student, the service dog, and others in the laboratory. This article…
