In this Zoom presentation you will learn about several real world examples of chemicals used in common consumer products (polybrominated diphenyl ethers in furniture to chelating agents in detergents) as well as learn about several Green Chemistry resources for faculty. Breakout room sessions will focus on the use of Green Chemistry concepts/ideas in the GChem classroom and in OChem lab. Come learn about how others are incorporating Green Chemistry materials and ideas into their classes and labs and learn about opportunities to further engage in this important topic as we all advance chemistry education into the second quarter of the 21st century.
