Phenanthroline: My Chemistry teacher would like to use Phenanthroline for senior chemistry EEI’s. The MSDS lists this chemical as Acute hazard category 1, and Acute toxicity oral category 3. Coul
Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and detailed method on how to handle liquid nitrogen (LN2).
The Chemical Management Handbook was developed by Science ASSIST in recognition of a need for guidance on the safe handling, storage and waste disposal of chemicals in schools.
Use of lead in ACT schools: From reading answers to another question, it's my understanding that lead is banned in some Australian jurisdictions, and approved or restricted in others.
Glutaric acid: I have found some old glutaric acid in my chemical store and would like to know if it is an approved chemical for use in schools.
Writing risk assessments for chemical classes: When writing risk assessments for chemical classes (instead of one for the use of every individual chemical), what is the best way? I've seen others

Use of Liquid Nitrogen: Are there any restrictions to using liquid nitrogen in school laboratories? If appropriate storage is sourced and safety procedures are followed, can teachers perform liqui
Potassium dichromate in the determination of alcohol content in wine: A prac for the determination of alcohol content in wine has been suggested for our Year 12 chemistry students.
Use of iron III nitrate and zinc nitrate: Is it still okay to use iron III nitrate and zinc nitrate, as they are not listed on the Recommended List of Chemicals for Schools. We currently make up 0
