Multiple Uses of Chemicals
Welcome to 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:
- The 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.
- The 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.
- The 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.
