Department of Chemistry organized a One-Day workshop on “Good Lab Practices GLP” recently.
Professor Dr. Sangita Pandita from Zakir Hussain College, Delhi University was the guest of honor. She has more than 3 decades of experience in sustainable Chemistry. The workshop started with a lecture and theoretical aspects of GLP, why GLP is necessary, and what factors are there for laboratory practice. She mentioned the importance of MSDS, TLV, Lab record file, KYA etc.
The session was followed by GLP demonstration in MG02, Dr. CNR RAO Laboratory where students were trained to isolate or extract caffeine from different tea samples (including green tea, brown tea, kahwa etc) and Trimyristin from nutmeg following GLP practices in microscale.
The last experiment was really fun where students made BOUNCY Balls in chemistry lab with boric acid and PVA.
