Apart from their basic utilization in laboratories, laboratory chemicals are also used by many industries for their production purposes. And obviously, the industries too have to comply with the standards associated with these chemicals for manufacturing their products. The one with hazardous properties must be labeled and shipped properly.
The laboratory chemicals are classified under several categories. The most accepted classification is provided by American Chemical Society under which they are known as ACS Grade Chemicals. The chemicals under this grade are properly tested by the scientists for their environmental implications. Following are the categories of laboratory chemicals.
Another classification of laboratory chemicals is done on the basis of inorganic and organic compounds. Organic ones are those that are produced naturally and contain carbon, while the remaining are inorganic compounds.
