GLRPPR Sector Resource: St. Catherine University: Green Chemistry Metrics for Choosing a Reaction - Incorporation of Independent Green Chemistry Student Assessments in Organic Chemistry Lab and an Introduction to Green Chemistry in General Chemistry Labs

Title:
St. Catherine University: Green Chemistry Metrics for Choosing a Reaction - Incorporation of Independent Green Chemistry Student Assessments in Organic Chemistry Lab and an Introduction to Green Chemistry in General Chemistry Labs

Abstract:
In 2011, the MPCA issued a series of grants to support the development of Green Chemistry and Design curricula at more post-secondary institutions in Minnesota and strengthen the Minnesota and national network of post-secondary faculty teaching aspects of Green Chemistry and Design. St. Catherine University was awarded one of these grants to develop a lab to introduce green chemistry concepts at the general chemistry level and develop a project at the organic chemistry level that requires students to compare greenness of two reactions.
