Product Details

Dramatically reduce hazardous waste generation in your lab and save money. This unique lab manual contains forty reproducible micro and macroscale experiments using mostly non-hazardous chemicals. Where expensive or hazardous chemicals could not be eliminated, they have been microscaled, resulting in lower costs and waste. Experiments vary in difficulty, and most can be completed in one 40-minute period. Each experiment contains both student and teacher parts. Reproducible student pages contain a detailed background, materials list, procedure, questions and calculations. Teacher pages list the time needed, difficulty level, materials, preparation time, background, safety and disposal, pitfalls, typical results and sample calculations. Also includes a section with illustrated laboratory techniques. Great addition to any textbook lab manual. 251 pages, 8½" × 11", soft cover.
