"...this substantial and engaging text offers a wealth of practical (in every sense of the word) advice...Every undergraduate laboratory, and, ideally, every undergraduate chemist, should have a copy of what is by some distance the best book I have seen on safety in the undergraduate laboratory." Chemistry World, March 2011 Laboratory Safety for Chemistry Students is uniquely designed to accompany students throughout their four-year undergraduate education and beyond, progressively teaching them the skills and knowledge they need to learn their science and stay safe while working in any lab. This new principles-based approach treats lab safety as a distinct, essential discipline of chemistry, enabling you to instill and sustain a culture of safety among students. As students progress through the text, they’ll learn about laboratory and chemical hazards, about routes of exposure, about ways to manage these hazards, and about handling common laboratory emergencies. Most importantly, they’ll learn that it is very possible to safely use hazardous chemicals in the laboratory by applying safety principles that prevent and minimize exposures. Continuously Reinforces and Builds Safety Knowledge and Safety Culture Each of the book’s eight chapters is organized into three tiers of sections, with a variety of topics suited to beginning, intermediate, and advanced course levels. This enables your students to gather relevant safety information as they advance in their lab work. In some cases, individual topics are presented more than once, progressively building knowledge with new information that’s appropriate at different levels. A Better, Easier Way to Teach and Learn Lab Safety We all know that safety is of the utmost importance; however, instructors continue to struggle with finding ways to incorporate safety into their curricula. Laboratory Safety for Chemistry Students is the ideal solution: Each section can be treated as a pre-lab assignment, enabling you to easily incorporate lab safety into all your lab courses without building in additional teaching time. Sections begin with a preview, a quote, and a brief description of a laboratory incident that illustrates the importance of the topic. References at the end of each section guide your students to the latest print and web resources. Students will also find “Chemical Connections” that illustrate how chemical principles apply to laboratory safety and “Special Topics” that amplify certain sections by exploring additional, relevant safety issues.

The work of accident prevention in the lab begins with foresight. Discerning "close calls"--near accidents--early enough prevents them from turning into full-fledged mishaps, mishaps that cost time and money, and which could result in injury. Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory is an accident prevention handbook for the professional in the lab that shows how to detect and eliminate the causes of dangerous mishaps--and virtually "hazard proof" any lab environment. In unequivocally clear and practical terms, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory, Second Edition offers detailed procedures--from precautionary labeling to simulated drills, safety inspections,and the preparation of a chemical hygiene plan--for the development of a safety-enhanced workplace. Reflecting, in part, the upgraded procedures now mandated by the OSHA Laboratory Standard in the USA, as well as the WHMIS regulations in Canada and the COSHH regulations in the United Kingdom, this newest edition offers unparalleled and up-to-date guidance on the fine points of hazard control, with new added material on managing and handling especially hazardous substances and personal protective equipment: * The 95 percent solution: the list of causes of laboratory accidents * Hazard categories: unsafe acts; unsafe conditions * Selecting and maintaining personal protective conditions * Accident handling * Classes of fuels and fires * Preventing and extinguishing fires * Toxic effects of chemicals * Recognition of and treatment for exposure * Chemical specific safety protocol * Storage of lab chemicals * Safe disposal of hazardous waste * Personal protective equipment in the laboratory * Improving hood performance * Designing safety into new or renovated laboratories A comprehensive, one-volume safety seminar, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory will provide indispensable guidance to lab supervisors and workers, teachers and students, and anyone involved in the investigation of chemical accidents and injury. In clear language that quickly details the full range of hidden--and avoidable--laboratory hazards, Improving Safety in the Chemical Laboratory, Second Edition offers the most up-to-date, practical, and easy-to-implement lab safety regimen yet available.

In our everyday, we use chemicals for a variety of our jobs. This includes work at office work and also household work as well. Even when it comes to bathroom cleaning or polishing our kitchen tiles we are using chemicals. This is the reason that one realizes that as we come in contact with chemicals so often, we need to safely use chemicals. Also one set of chemicals need to be put to use for a particular task only and we should never take the liberty of using it for other purposes.

In der geheimen Welt des verborgenen Wissens hat die Macht einen schrecklich hohen Preis Quentin Coldwater steht kurz vor dem Abschluss der Highschool. Die Schule langweilt ihn – wie ihn eigentlich alles langweilt außer Fillory, das magische Land aus den phantastischen Büchern, die er liebt. Doch plötzlich findet sich Quentin, der gerade noch durch Brooklyn gelaufen ist, selbst in einer magischen Welt wieder, an einer geheimen Zauberschule: Brakebills College. Und auch Fillory gibt es wirklich. Aber es ist keine heile Welt, sondern ein düsterer Ort, von dem eine schreckliche Bedrohung ausgeht. Quentin und seine Freunde begeben sich auf eine gefährliche Reise – und müssen sich einem alles entscheidenden Kampf stellen... »Fillory verhält sich zu Harry Potter wie ein Glas Whiskey zu einem Becher dünnen Tees. Fest verankert sowohl in der Tradition des Fantasyromans als auch in der der allgemeinen Literatur, spielt er an auf die Welten von Oz und Narnia - auch Harry Potter lässt grüßen. Aber glauben Sie ja nicht, das sei ein Kinderbuch. Grossmans Gefühlswelten sind durch und durch erwachsen, seine Erzählweise düster, gefährlich und voller überraschender Wendungen. Hogwarts war nie so« George R. R. Martin, Das Lied von Eis und Feuer – A Game of Thrones
