Although effort is made on these pages to assure and encourage safe practices and safe use of chemicals, we cannot assume responsibility for uses made of these directions. Many chemicals are hazardous. Precautions for the safe use of hazardous chemicals and directions for their proper disposal are described by their distributors in the Material Safety Data Sheets and on the labels. We strongly urge all those planning to use materials from our pages to make choices and to develop procedures for laboratory and classroom safety in accordance with local needs and situations.
