Quick Guide: Green Chemistry
Produced by the Triple Science Support Programme, this quick guide looks at our use of chemicals which is inevitable, whatever their source. Green, or sustainable, chemistry develops chemicals and processes capable of performing vital functions, while minimising social and environmental costs.
This is a resource produced by current experts in the field of green chemistry to provide teachers with an understanding of current scientific thinking which they can apply in the classroom. The quick guide is a simplified summary of complex ideas for the busy practitioner teaching out of subject or needing a refresher.
This resource has been included in this collection for teachers’ use, however it may contain some information, particularly relating to Government policy, which is now out of date.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
