A brief description of the program:

Micro Chemistry. For many years now, the Chemistry Department has been using a “micro chemistry” approach in its organic chemistry teaching. With this concept very small amounts of chemicals are used to teach chemical reactions. This reduces the amount of chemicals going into the waste stream and cost to the department. We also participate in a chemical exchange program, where excess chemicals are offered to local schools.
