Research environments using many different types of chemicals have special storage requirements. Whether using acids, bases or solvents, it is critical that incompatible liquids are segregated to avoid disastrous explosions or fire. The SDS (Safety Data Sheet) should be reviewed to determine chemical characteristics and recommended storage practices.
