I am working in a small lab (in a small company) with very poor conditions, which I have to improve (for example: no sink , I have to wash the glassware in the bathroom). My organic chemistry is very poor, I am new to using solvents, and I have several basic doubts:
- How to correctly wash the glassware after use?
- How to correctly dispose of wasted solvents?
- Should I leave the chemical fume hood on after using it and, if so, for how long?
I basically only do electrospinning here, using the respective solvents: - Trifluoroacetic acid - Dichloromethane - Formic acid
