Our department chair would like a survey of the mos t recent  (past 5 yrs) accidents in a college chemistry laboratory as part of a  presentation to the incoming chemistry graduate students.  Our students will both assist in teaching  the undergraduate labs and begin their  research.   I am aware of the tragic event regarding Sheri Sangi but not other accidents specific to a  Chemistr y lab.  If you would are willing to share any that you know, I will co mpile the information and make it available to the DCHAS-L.
Thank you,< br>Mary Ellen
