"The chemical laboratory is absolutely now not a deadly position to paintings in, however it calls for an inexpensive prudence at the a part of the experimenters and instructers, to maintain it a secure position. Emphasis has to be confident, indicating the correct, right and secure technique to be in all laboratory operations or while confron­ ted with an emergency scenario. Too heavy pressure upon the horrors linked to laboratory injuries or photograph descriptions of gory accidents or nasty fires might be refrained from. nervous, timid scholars usually tend to have injuries than the convinced laboratory guy who works with due regard to defense. " This assertion, written through 1. R. younger (1) in 1971, within the magazine of Chemical schooling, applies not just to scholars operating within the chemical laboratory yet might be prolonged to all scientists and technicians operating with unsafe items, and specifically with chemical cancer agents. the dangers of dealing with poisonous or harmful chem­ icals were good documented. in addition to safeguard notices and articles within the clinical literature, a lot of books were devoted to this topic, between which are stated safeguard and twist of fate Prevention in Chemical Operations (2), instruction manual of Laboratory security (3), risks within the Chemical Laboratory (4), 1 instruction manual of Reactive Chemical risks (5), safeguard in operating with chemical compounds (6) and Prudent Practices for dealing with dangerous chemical substances in Laboratories (7).

These are described in detail here. 1 The Room Itself It must be built in such a way that there is no possibility of any contamination escaping into corridors or other rooms in the building or outside the building. All exhaust systems, i. , air-conditioning ducts, hoods and drains, should be equipped with adequate trapping systems, which can be changed by maintenance personnel without manual contact. The room should have a minimum of eight air changes per hour and a minimum of 5 mm of water pressure differential with other laboratory areas to which they are linked and/or 10-20 mm of water pressure differential with offices or corridors.

To 2,3-dichloroaflatoxin Bl (129), a potent carcinogen and mutagen (130), which is unstable in solutions containing 5% acetone. 5% to avoid a strong haloform reaction. Thus modified, the method was adopted after collaborative study for treatment of the wastes presented in Table 1 (131). (ii) Methods using treatment with an alkaline reagent: Treatment of aflatoxins with an alkaline reagent at 43 room temperature leads to opening of the lactone ring (132), and several methods using sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate, ammonia or amines have been proposed in the literature.

When installed, glove boxes must be kept under a negative pressure of 15-45 mm of water with respect to the space in which they are located. 5 (4»). It is recommended that benches be made of impermeable material, and that trays be available in a material that cannot be attacked by carcinogens or solvents. Stainless-steel trays are preferable, since they can also resist acids and strong oxidants, which might be necessary for their decontamination (see Section 3). Absorbent material with a plastic undercoating must be provided for placing on benches and in trays.
