The last time this happened we had no choice but to have each sample analyzed. Do not ask what is cost, not to mention many had to be disposed of separately.

All,

Now that the strangest academic year in my experience has come to a close, I'm keeping busy doing a bit of housekeeping. I found a box of bottles on a shelf last week, only to find the bottles in the box are all filled with research results. Few were labeled.

The faculty member that made these is no longer with the university and left some time ago. They had a wide range of research interests (hormones to organometallics) which complicates matters.

My question for each of you today: how do you go about identifying unknowns?

I'm working with folks on campus to see if there's any digital footprint of what these may be, in the meantime I would like to figure out what these are. Please save conversations of housekeeping, record keeping, and best practices for a different thread, with respect, that ship did sail. I think these are all very important topics; at the moment I'm interested in getting these bottles identified and packaged for disposal.

My thanks in advance!
Jennifer.
