10 Green chemistry teaching and research at a small, Catholic university

From the book Green Chemistry

  • Ashley M. Smith and Edward P. Zovinka


Green chemistry, while often discussed in the context of industry, must also factor into a comprehensive undergraduate education. In teaching chemistry at a small, Catholic university, the curriculum can be tailored to incorporate not only green chemistry principles but also the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from early general chemistry laboratories to more advanced independent study projects for senior chemistry majors. This chapter discusses methods to incorporate green chemistry and the SDGs into undergraduate education, ranging from student research projects to student-led community outreach events.
