CHEM 3150 - Green Chemistry & Sustainability (E)

3 hours
Prerequisites: CHEM 2211   Sustainability has been defined as the ability to meet our present needs without affecting the ability of future generations to meet their needs. On both personal and global scales, the things we make and use have a tremendous impact on our health and our environment. Energy, water, food production, and pollution are all tightly linked to chemistry. This course will discuss the role chemistry plays in solving environmental problems and moving the world toward a more sustainable future. Topics will include metrics for measuring environmental impacts (life cycle assessment, etc.), the impacts of today’s technologies, and development of “greener” alternatives for both materials and energy sources. Understanding of basic chemical concepts is required.
