In this exercise you will learn about the Reactive Chemical Explosion that happened at the T2 Laboratories. You will analyse the chemistry of the individual steps in the process and watch a video of the incident prepared by the US Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board to understand why the incident occurred and suggest how the process could be made safer.
