We have chemicals in several locations. Everyone should sign up for MyChem, a University of Washington Chemical inventory service. Talk to Frances Chu about this. Once in MyChem, you can search for chemical names. You must spell it correctly, and you can only type a fraction of a word if you like. When it finds your item, click to see the room number. Then use this legend: Room:
