RNS 310
Time: 1:00-2:00 pm

Green Chemistry involves more than reduce, reuse & recycle, it can mean using better designed products that are less toxic and more sustainable.  Join Dr. Julie Zimmerman as she explains how rational design can create the next generation of molecules.
What You Will Learn
  • The role of Green Chemistry in innovation
  • Molecular design guidelines for reduced acute and chronic toxicity
  • Correlation of physiochemical properties to toxicity endpoints
  • Use of mechanistic toxicology to advance the design of safer chemicals
  • And much more!

 Meet Your Experts
