Unformatted text preview: of this laboratory program is that a concerted effort has been made to use
environmentally less toxic or non-toxic materials in these experiments. This was not only
done to protect students but also to lessen the impact of this program upon the
environment. This commitment to the environment has presented an enormous
challenge, as many traditional experiments could not be used due to the negative impact
of the chemicals involved. Some experiments are completely environmentally safe and
in these the products can be disposed of by placing solids in the wastebasket and
solutions down the drain with copious amounts of water. Others contain a very limited
amount of hazardous waste and in these cases the waste must be collected in the proper
container for treatment and disposal. The Department is committed to the further
development of environmentally safe experiments which still clearly illustrate the
important principles and techniques.
The sequence of experiments in this Laboratory Manual is designed to follow the lecture
curriculum. However, instruc...
