Miniaturizing Chemistry the Ecological Alternative
The use of chemical substances in educational chemistry laboratories has unsubstitutable didactic objectives. However, it is a two-sided coin where the murky one involves associated dangers and mismanagement. For many years a myriad of teachers throughout the world have been using minute amounts of substances to reduce the ecological impact of school experimentation as well as costs, dangers, time, space, and fright. This has been called Microscale (or Small-scale) Chemistry.
