Greener chemistry laboratory materials for use in general chemistry teaching labs, and case studies with analyses of greener experiments as compared to traditional experiments.
Greener chemistry laboratory materials for use in organic chemistry teaching labs, case studies with analyses of greener experiments as compared to traditional experiments, including a resource guide for implementing green chemistry in the organic chemistry lab course. The resource guide features measurable benefits from implementing greener alternative organic chemistry labs, including waste reduction, economic benefits, and hazard reduction, and also includes a TA support guide.
Curriculum resources for integrating toxicology in chemistry courses and lab experiments that demonstrate toxicology methods and assays.
The Yale-UNIDO University Curriculum is a semester long course developed in collaboration with Beyond Benign. This free course is designed for undergraduate students and teaches (i) how the principles of green chemistry can help resolve global human health and environmental issues, (ii) how green chemistry functions and (iii) how it is implemented. The curriculum was developed as part of the Global Green Chemistry Initiative (GGCI), a joint initiative between the Center for Green Chemistry and Engineering at Yale and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and was funded by GEF (Global Environment Facility). The GGCI consists of six primary projects to raise awareness and provide instruction and information on green chemistry.
