Hi Monique:


I will be happy to help you, If you can provide me the list of reactions. Extraction, reflux distillation are all work-up processes of organic/inorganic syntheses. Please refer recent article about hazards associated with hydrogenation reactions:



Thank you and good luck.

Hello Everyone,


Welcome back to post-election America!


I have a favor to ask of the crowd:


I have a huge task ahead of me of my own accord.  I need to write up hazard assessments for all of my teaching and research labs.  Of course, the process has been done many times and we have procedures with controls in place, but nothing documenting why those processes and controls.  I hate writing in any shape or form.  I was wondering if anyone has already done this and may be willing to share them with me as a starting point to make this seem less daunting????  I am specifically interested in ones for common organic chemistry procedures such as extraction, distillation, reflux, those synthesis-related things, etc.


If you could help, I would really appreciate it.


Thank you,

Monique Wilhelm
