Lab Bench

Branford, CT  2016

Sometimes my lab bench get a little out of control.  Chemists are trained early in their careers to never throw anything away.  You never know when you might need a compound that you made or purchased.  I think it's about time I cleaned this bench, before it becomes listed by the EPA as a "Superfund" Site. 


  1. Ed, love your photo and comment. My first reaction to seeing all those chemicals was, "Hazard."

    1. Thanks, Jeff. Although all chemicals have some degree of hazard associated with them, I wouldn't leave the truly hazardous ones sitting on my bench. You'll be happy to know that the bench is now clean.
