The ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable has publicly available tools for innovation in chemistry which may be of interest to those in academia and research beyond the pharmaceutical industry. This webinar will provide a tool overview that will assist to lower the barrier to use, the function of these tools and the tools relevance outside of pharmaceutical industry for students and educators. Our goal is to highlight and start a discussion of how these tools can be utilized by the academic community to prepare students for future careers where such tools are vital to decision making and processes. The community will then have a better understanding of the power of these open-access tools and how they can be integrated into green chemistry educational curriculum for student learning.
