I am taking an undergrad course "ethics in chemistry" and I have to write a paper on a topic that deals with.. well... ethics in chemistry. :)

I have some ideas, but in short... I am having a hard time deciding.


Any ideas as to something interesting one can write about?

Hmm...
Could you perhaps describe the course a bit.
Ethics in Chemistry is one of wierdest word
combinations I ever heard. Is this about
naming the elements and historic facts about
profound researchers ? Or maybe something related
to the application of various materials ?

Live long and prosper.

Indeed, is there even such a thing as ethics in chemistry? I mean, application of chemical discoveries (chemical engineering) needs ethics, but doing the science of chemistry itself seems pretty free from a neccessity for ethics.
Unless I am missing something...
