We are committed to the principles of green chemistry in all aspects of our program: in the classroom, in the teaching and research labs, and in lab organization and operation, with the aim of reducing or eliminating the use or generation of hazardous substances. Our program aims to train future chemists and biochemists to wisely consider the complete lifecycle of chemicals and any associated environmental impacts.
