At the University of Scranton we have been awarded a grant from The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Special Grant Program in the Chemical Sciences to develop modules in green chemistry to insert into existing courses across the college chemistry curriculum.

On June 26, 2000 Daryle Busch, president of the American Chemical Society said "Green chemistry represents the pillars that hold up our sustainable future. It is imperative to teach the value of green chemistry to tomorrow's chemists."

We believe that it is very important that university students be exposed to real-world, state-of-art examples of green chemistry (environmentally benign chemistry) in the mainstream courses that they encounter in a typical college chemistry curriculum. Many industries are now practicing green chemical principles. Those students who are versed in green chemistry will be most attractive to these industries, and will be able to foster the practice of green chemistry in these industries, and initiate the practice and discussion of green chemistry throughout industry and academia.

It is our hope that these modules will make it simple, attractive and easy for other instructors to infuse green chemistry into the courses they teach
