Here are some very important steps for building a Chemistry lab from the scratch.
1) Choosing your location- This probably is the first and the most important thing that one needs to do i.e find your perfect location and make sure that the location has all the necessary provisions that should be basic for a lab.
2) Obtaining lab supplies- First, you need to establish the type of work you’re going to do in your lab. For instance, a biology lab will be set up differently than a chemistry lab. Similarly, your needs are going to be different if you’re a student doing science fair experiments versus a more advanced scientist performing complex reactions at home
3) Purchase essential supplies- Obtain a filtration system so you can filter your solutions in order to reduce the risk of contamination. Beakers, Erlenmeyer flasks (with stoppers), and graduated cylinders of various sizes will be invaluable to your experiments. Sizes ranging from 250 mL to 1000 mL are good to start with. Small plastic pipettes, test tubes, racks for test tubes, heat resistant tubing, and a funnel are also useful to have on hand.
- Burettes for titrations might also be useful for some chemistry experiments.
- As you use your lab more, you will get to know what you need more of and what you don’t need.
- High-quality student-grade equipment is usually sufficient for the work you would be doing at home and is much less expensive than professional grade. Beware though, if it seems too cheap, it probably is.
4) Get the basic science laboratory equipment and tools for experiments- Thermometers, pH paper, a milligram scale, hot plates, stir plates, and stir bars are all essential to starting a lab. Tools such as forceps, scoops, and tongs for hot flasks are useful as well. A small basic microscope might also be beneficial
