DOZN™ 2.0: A Quantitative Green Chemistry Evaluator
September 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
MilliporeSigma launched a new Green Chemistry tool, DOZN™ 2.0 this past spring. DOZN™ is an industry-first Quantitative Green Chemistry Evaluator that evaluates the relative greenness of chemicals and chemical processes against the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. Through DOZN™ 2.0, scientists now have access to calculate the green scores of their own processes and products. This free, web-based tool provides users with even more data so that they are properly equipped to increase their sustainability. This webinar will introduce the tool and the methodology behind the evaluator.
