Developing Greener Chemistry Research Projects and Curriculum

Tamara Shephard, Ashley Lamm, and Joshua J. Pak. Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID

Many chemistry laboratory experiments employ toxic and/or harmful chemicals and solvents. In an effort to increase the awareness and practice of green chemistry by our undergraduate students, we have been developing greener chemistry experiments. In this presentation, we will describe in detail how undergraduate and ACS Project SEED research project was utilized to develop green organic and advanced organic laboratory curriculum.
