DWK safety tips and tricks - heating laboratory glass

Heating glassware is an important topic as heat can change the volume of the glassware if the temperature used is too high. The maximum temperature for heating the glass depends on the specifications and what type of glass is used. For example, borosilicate glassware provides a lower coefficient of expansion than other glass types such as soda lime glass. Another note is that not all glassware...

Using TRUEscience:Redox to monitor disinfection potential of water

Oxidation reduction potential (ORP) otherwise known as a REDOX potential measures an aqueous system’s capacity to either release or accept electrons from chemical reactions. When a system tends to accept electrons it is an oxidizing system. Conversely, when it tends to release electrons, it is a reducing system. Like pH, it is not a measure of a concentration directly, but of an activity level....
