CHEM 003C. Green and Sustainable Chemistry


Green chemistry underlies the sustainable use of our natural resources. Core principles will be presented on how to achieve sustainability. Atom economy as driver to limit chemical waste and the conversion of this waste to reusable resources will be addressed. The course will focus on the impact of catalysis, nutrients, fertilizers, biomass, solvents, and energy usage on our daily life, how to minimize waste, and how to make the involved chemical processes green to enable the sustainable use of our natural resources.
