While selecting glassware, decide the compatibility of the glass with the chemicals or procedure.  Several chemicals react with glass or cause harm (etch) glass.  On the off chance that your procedure includes temperature or pressure changes, make sure the glassware can withstand the progressions.

Volatile materials expand upon heating and result in explosion.  An exothermic reaction takes place upon mixing sulfuric acid with water inside a barrel, bringing about the heat from the reaction to break the base of the vessel.  Do not mix sulfuric acid inside a cylinder.

Hydrofluoric acid, hot phosphoric acid and strong hot alkalis attack and etch glassware.  Do not use glass to carry out these processes.
