Introduction to the basic design principles for greener chemical technologies; widely used practices, including catalysis, use of renewable starting materials, minimization of energy inputs, and use of greener solvents.
1. Apply metrics, such as e-factor, atom economy and solvent utilization to compare the relative environmental impact of chemical reactions. 2. Assess the relative environmental impact of industrial and lab-scale chemical processes/technologies; 3. Provide means by which the environmental impact may be reduced by modification of the chemical reactions involved, with particular emphasis on catalysis 4. Assess the relative energy efficiency of chemical reactions 5. Evaluate the challenges and trade-offs faced by chemical industries that are attempting to shift production processes towards renewable technologies 6. Identify social and technological factors that can promote or impede the adoption of “greener” technologies
