Come together and compare ecological essential or toxic inorganic and organic substances.

Answer following issues;

--> Select 3 essential and 3 toxic inorganic compounds

--> Select 3 essential and 3 toxic organic compounds

Describe their appearance and chemical effects in the environment on ecosystems and human beings. 

The idea will be to run similar workshops in each nation, and set a competition to see who has the most relevant and interesting workshop.

Topic: competition, workshops Audience: tertiary education, educators, general public, professional chemists, post graduate students
