Fisher Science Education, through a partnership with Beyond Benign, developed this classroom ready slide presentation that briefly describes the 12 principles of green chemistry. The presentation first focuses on the role of chemists in society and introduces green chemistry as a way to solve environmental problems. Each principle is defined and presented in the context of a basic application.
Summary prepared May 2008 by Julie Haack, University of Oregon.
