A Guide to Green Chemistry Experiments for Undergraduate Organic Chemistry Labs
Beyond Benign, My Green Lab, and MilliporeSigma have teamed up to develop a comprehensive teaching guide for undergraduate labs featuring Green Chemistry alternatives to traditional organic chemistry experiments and Green Chemistry lab practices.
About the Guide
The organic chemistry laboratory is an opportunity to give students first-hand experience with reactions and techniques central to organic chemistry. Introducing Green Chemistry into the curriculum allows students to continue to learn the fundamentals while also gaining knowledge of Green Chemistry Principles and how they can be used in the lab. For the health of our planet and our people, we believe it is important to train the next generation of chemists to think critically about their chemistry and explore ways to reduce the health and environmental impacts of the molecules they are designing.
That is why Beyond Benign, My Green Lab, and MilliporeSigma have teamed up to develop a comprehensive teaching Guide for undergraduate organic chemistry labs that features Green Chemistry alternatives to traditional organic chemistry experiments. We have recently updated the Guide to include more experiments, an updated introduction, an overview of MilliporeSigma’s DOZN™ 2.0 quantitative Green Chemistry evaluator, and more!
