Dear DCHAS Listers,


We are interested in how various colleges and universities label synthesized chemical materials in small quantities in vials.


Some of our organic chemists have hundreds of samples in small vials labelled with structures only. Some samples may or may not be novel substances.


This becomes a problem when someone retires or leaves and our hazardous waste group is tasked with identifying hundreds of samples for disposal purposes.


What do you require?


Actual chemical names? Associated hazards? Can they be grouped and stored in similar chemical groups.


Any information is very much appreciated.
