Power Point Presentation (PDF)

ABSTRACT: Integrating green chemistry concepts into the curriculum is facilitated by easy access to materials suitable for both the classroom and the laboratory. Because green chemistry is a recent approach to the practice of chemistry, widespread adoption of this approach has been somewhat hindered by a lack of teaching materials. But this situation is changing - the development of a variety of resources, including textbooks, experiments, and case studies, is lowering the activation energy needed to introduce green chemistry into the curriculum. This presentation will provide an overview of currently available green chemistry education resources.
