I work in a school in which we have all of our salts stored alphabetically in a storage room. Do I have to arrange them in groups of anion names as recommended in the STAO publication Stay Safe! or can I leave them in their metal cation name order (e.g., aluminum sulphate, copper chloride, lithium chloride etc….) to facilitate all non-chemistry science teachers locating chemicals more easily. P.S. Our acids and flammables are in separate containers.
