DCHAS members may be interested to know that the ACS CPT approved a green chemistry supplement to the ACS Guidelines in New Orleans. It can know be found on the ACS website here:
The introduction is:
Committee on Professional Training
Green Chemistry in the Curriculum
Green chemistry principles provide bases for evaluating and designing new chemical products and processes that minimize adverse impacts on human and environmental health. Many undergraduate chemistry programs already implement green and sustainable chemistry concepts that have resulted in increased laboratory safety and decreased volume and toxicity of waste. This supplement suggests ways to integrate green chemistry strategies, concepts and practices throughout the chemistry curriculum. As a result, students develop the skills and vision that will enable them to contribute to a sustainable future through chemistry.
