Green Chemistry Videos

The MoDRN Team and Paul Anastas have put together videos to introduce concepts of green chemistry to design and synthesize safer chemicals with less impact. These videos are designed to look at science behind environmental problems and to understand how green chemistry can help to solve them. Students can explore areas where green chemistry was successfully applied and where the lack of green chemistry systems thinking led to unintended consequences. 

Videos are divided into the following areas:

toxicology, solvents, energy, feedstocks, catalysis, end of life, accidents and design of safer chemicals, and can be added to existing lesson plans. They also offer additional examples and key definitions from the green chemistry perspective. While we recommend to view the videos sequentially, they can be also treated as individual modules based on interest.
