Green Chemistry Tony Biallas Section 8 Kelly Wilt and Megan Courtley 10-11-2010 Dr.Maxine Davis Introduction The purpose of Green Chemistry is to become more eco-friendly, by reducing the amount of hazardous material released into the environment and the usage of limited resources. Green chemistry is based on twelve overarching principles. Three of which, prevention, atom economy, and the use and production of nontoxic material, are included in this lab. Prevention is a very important part when dealing with green chemistry. Prevention helps avoid the usage of harmful chemical wastes in experiments. As a result, at the end of the experiment there would be no need to worry about how hazardous wastes should be dealt with. Atom economy is used to determine if the experiment actually uses green chemistry. Green Chemistry is used to maximize the atoms economy. Finally it is very important to stay away from the usage of hazardous waste, because even just a little bit of waste can do much damage. It is important to apply Green Chemistry when performing labs as much as possible. In this lab no waste was produced and the sodium carbonate was able to be stored and used again later. 2yNaHCO
