1-Day Awareness Raising Workshop

Fundamentals of Green Chemistry

The second module explains with detail the 12 Principles that define Green Chemistry as a field. The 12 Principles consist of guidelines for chemists to design chemical products and processes to reduce or eliminate the generation and use of hazardous substances. This module also compares green chemistry based technologies to traditional techniques, showing that it is possible to reconcile high performance and yield with environmental concerns. 

Length: 67 slides                    Recommended time: 60 minutes

Areas of Research in Green Chemistry

The third module discusses the many aspects of research in Green Chemistry, highlighting the advances in technologies related to chemical feedstock, catalysis, solvents, and waste. It defines the importance of each one of these four aspects and establishes the connection between advances in these fields and the principles of Green Chemistry.

Length: 57 slides                    Recommended time: 90 minutes

Workshop Agenda

Introduction: Chemicals in the Society

From the Harber-Bosh process to findings in nanotechnology, advances in the chemical industry have had great impacts in human social organization. This first module highlights the importance of the chemical industry in everyday life and shows how its development is closely linked to the changes in the global society and economics. It also acknowledges the many environmental problems born with these advances and discusses the current approaches and solutions to them.

Length: 39 slides                    Recommended time: 60 minutes
