ABSTRACT
The article discusses the growing emphasis on ethical training in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum. It discusses arguments about the resistance of reluctance among scientific faculty members to the general concept of teaching research ethics such that ethics cannot be taught. Another objection is that faculty members in chemistry do not have training in teaching research ethics.
