Kate Turner is currently working with Marc and a number of technicians to record and label all of the chemical waste across the School so it can be sent for disposal. This is a huge task! As you can imagine there are some ‘veteran’ chemicals on the shelves, including this tin of Activated Carbon which Kate found from 1967!
Challenge for the summer – have you come across any old chemicals/samples/files etc in your office or lab? Is there anything dated pre-1967? Send in photographs and we will update the blog. There is no prize but you may set the record!
