Lab Chemical Safety Summaries


The links below go to the Laboratory Chemical Safety Summaries, which were published in Prudent Practices in the Laboratory: Handling and Disposal of Chemicals by the National Research Council in 1995.

These documents provide a good overview of physical and health hazards associated with laboratory use of the listed chemicals, as well as recommendations for storage, handling, and disposal. The summaries may refer you back to other parts of Prudent Practices you can access those sections by going to the Prudent Practices Table of Contents and using the table of contents or "search this book" feature. (Note that a new edition is due out this year (2010) and may contain updated information.)
