Making and Using Chemicals
This collection of resources from the Royal Society of Chemistry examines various chemicals and compounds that affect people in everyday life. These compounds include herbicides that are used in gardening and farming and medicines such as aspirin. The emphasis in these resources is on the way that these products are designed, synthesised and commercially produced.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
