The main intent of this exercise is to gain experience in using legitimate scientific sources to gather information about a topic. Avoid using the general internet (e.g. search engines) as the sole, or even main, source of information. Instead, use the sources you learned about in the library such as SciFinder, Chemical Abstracts, or Science Citation Index. The information found in the general internet may or may not carry scientific validity. This is the most important requirement. Otherwise style is free. Length requirements must be observed. If you wish to write a longer paper consult with your instructor or lab coordinator.
