compatibility must be managed in any laboratory activity
in which chemicals are handled, used or stored. The
mixing of incompatible chemicals can result in sudden,
violent and unforeseen hazards and may cause significant
personal injury and property damage.
Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) should always be referred to
first before using or storing any chemicals. In addition,
charts like the following can be used as reference guides
to determine which classes of chemicals may or may not
be used or stored together.
