Green Chemistry has been widely adopted as a means for reducing hazards and waste in chemistry labs, while maintaining the necessary rigor for teaching fundamental reactions and techniques. In a collaborative partnership between Beyond Benign, My Green Lab, and MilliporeSigma, a new resource guide has been developed for undergraduate organic chemistry teaching labs. This guide provides educators with a set of safer, greener alternative organic chemistry experiments to demonstrate key chemical transformations to undergraduate chemistry students, and indicates quantifiable benefits when greener alternative experiments are implemented, including waste reduction, hazard reduction, and cost savings.
