About the Chemistry Safety Virtual Simulation Lab
Are you ready to work in a chemistry lab? In the Chemistry Safety simulation you will learn how to safely work with organic solvents. Experiment with dangerous chemicals and make mistakes without putting yourself in danger.
Biodiesel for a greener world
We need to find sustainable fuel sources to reduce CO2 emissions and battle climate change. Your mission in the Chemistry Safety lab is therefore to find an effective process for producing biodiesel from algal oils. Can you figure out how to convert oil into diesel?
Fumes in the fume hood
In the Chemistry Safety lab, you’ll get to work with methanol, a volatile organic solvent. This means you need to work in a chemical fume hood. Learn how to set up your reaction in the fume hood and dispose solvents in the organic waste. Look up the physical properties of your reactants in the safety data sheet, to make sure your reaction will be successful.
Dangers in the lab
In the Chemistry Safety lab, you’ll learn to identify the hazards posed by the different chemicals that you are using, which is a very important step in the planning of every experiment.
Just like in the real world, things will get nasty if you make mistakes while working with dangerous chemicals.
Are you ready to react quickly in case of an emergency, and will you be able to apply your chemistry safety knowledge correctly?
