A detailed dynamic management system of chemicals has been created based on radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and face recognition in the National Demonstration Center for Experimental Chemistry Education of Xiamen University. The system is designed to track chemicals from their procurement, through their depletion and the disposal of empty bottles. It has been proved to be of high accuracy, easy operation and high reliability. The data recorded improve traceability in chemical management, and the data analytics provides guideline for ordering of chemicals. The system can be extended to manage the entire life cycle of chemicals from their manufacturing, storage, transportation, utilization and disposal as chemical waste.

Key words: Management of chemicals, RFID, Face recognition, Detailed management, Dynamic management
