THE APPLICATIONS OF GREEN CHEMISTRY IN CHEMICAL REACTIONS Green Chemistry is defined as the design of chemical products and processes to reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances How does “green chemistry” differ from from cleaning up pollution? While “pollution prevention” programs focus on reducing pollutants at the source, many of them do not focus enough on the design issues that are the core of “green chemistry.” Green chemistry reduces pollution at its source by minimizing or eliminating the hazards of chemical feedstock’s, reagents, solvents, and products. In simpler words, cleaning up pollution means removing hazardous materials from the environment; green chemistry, on the other hand, keeps the hazardous materials out of the environment in the first place.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
