It's surprising to me that she doesn't sometimes also use a respirator / full face mask with appropriate filters. Those things are generally available in university chemistry departments, in case someone needs to work with universally unpleasant compounds like HCN, nickel tetracarbonyl or what have you. And in her case providing unlimited access to them would clearly fall into the realm of reasonable accommodation.

I really hope it's not organic chemistry she's allergic to, because the only way of avoiding it is cremation.

The academic discipline, not the laws of physics
In the linked article it says volatile organic compounds, which I'm assuming means some of the common organic solvents.
