Are there chemicals which should not be allowed in the science lab?

Flinn Scientific believes that "all chemicals in any form can be safely stored, handled or used if the physical, chemical and hazardous properties are fully understood and the necessary precautions, including the use of proper safeguards and personal protective equipment, are observed."

In our Flinn Scientific Catalog/Reference Manual we discuss in detail questions you should ask before purchasing a chemical. The random banning of chemicals is becoming an increasing problem. Teachers must have available to them every teaching tool possible to educate our nation's young people. The five questions we ask on page 36 will help you make an informed decision about the chemical you wish to purchase.
