Course description and aims

[Summary of the lecture] In this lecture, management of reagents and high pressure gases, fire extinguishing and environmental preservation will be explained.
[Aim of the lecture] In chemical research, correct managements of chemical reagents and high pressure gases are important for safe experiments. In case of emergency, it is necessary to respond fire rapidly and correctly. Moreover, it is also important to secure own health and safety by knowing laws related to safety and environment and to acquire morals of chemists such as prevention of environmental load. After this lecture and a previous lecture "Environment Preservation and Chemical Safety I", students acquire the ability to carry out chemical research safely. Enrollment of Environment Preservation and Chemical Safety I, which consists of reagent management, environmental preservation and risk management, is desirable.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students acquire the following ability:
(1) Ability to manage reagents and high pressure gases
(2) Ability to extinguish fire.
(3) Ability to explain environmental preservation.


Chemical reagent, high pressure gas, fire extinguishing, environmental preservation

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This lecture will proceed in the following order: reagent and gas managements and their practice, fire fighting and its practice, environmental preservation. In every lecture, practice problems and interpretation will be carried out to confirm the level of understanding.
