|"In contrast to the environmentally harmful solvent dichloromethane used in Experiment 2, the only solvent used in this experiment is dihydrogen oxide (H2O), also known as water. It has been established that H2O can cause serious injury or death by inhalation (in its liquid state), thermal burns (in its gaseous state), and hypothermia (in its solid state). Nevertheless, H2O is not officially classified as a hazardous chemical and may be released into the environment."|
