In the first student video, why not simply say that both methanol and methylene chloride are capable of penetrating these thin nitrile Kimberly Clark gloves in under a minute?  And that if users are interested they can use the chart to see the rate at which the solvent is passed through the glove? And why not actually use Kimberly Clarks' recommendation that gloves be immediately removed if there is an incidental splash of the chemicals on the glove?

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Updated glove video

I thought I would let DCHAS-L know that I significantly updated the nitrile glove video based on comments from the list last month. The updated version is available at

In addition to adding information to the video, most specifically a reference to the Kimberly Clark nitrile glove selection guide, there is now a link at the Youtube site to a pdf file that inlcudes the powerpoint slides that appear in the video (this is partially to address issues that they go by too quickly in the video). There are also quiz and discussion questions for the video that might help it be of use in teaching lab settings. I hope to develop a module for the Keene State learning managing system that will allow this information to be included in undergraduate chemistry labs easily.

Comments and questions on the video would be appreciated.
