Multiple Uses of Chemicals! This website explores the beneficial uses, misuses, and abuses of multi-use chemicals,
both historically and presently. You will explore what is being done to monitor the abuse of multi-use chemicals and
will discuss your responsibility in responding to this global problem.
These interactive resources have been designed for students, educators and policy makers, with specific content directed
towards each group:
Students section works through examples of chemicals that have both beneficial and harmful uses, ranging from pharmaceutical
products to solvents and destructive chemical weapons. Ideas of scientific responsibility and ethics are introduced
to help students think about making the right choices.
Educators and Policy Makers section contains much of the same content as the
Students section, with additional information and suggestions for implementation of this resource into classroom
or group settings.
Brief Overview section addresses the key concepts and historical events associated with the uses, misuses, and abuses of multi-use
chemicals, without entering into a detailed discussion. This is a starting point for quick access to information.
