environmental movement4
Environmental Movement
  • “Dilution is solution”
  • Pollution Prevention Act
    • option of first choice
    • national policy of US
  • “Alternative Synthetic Pathways for Pollution Prevention”
    • design synthesis of chemicals for PP
    • collaborations, voluntary partnerships
environmental movement5
Environmental Movement
  • Approaches in recent past:
    • Reduction of risk of manufacturing and use
    • Innovative chemistries to treat wastes and remediate sites
    • New monitoring and analytical tools for detection in air, water, soils
    • New handling and containment procedures to minimize exposure
green chemistry6
Green Chemistry
  • Carrying out chemical activities, including chemical design, manufacture, use, and disposal, such that hazardous substances will not be used and generated
  • Tool in accomplishing Pollution Prevention
  • Encompasses all aspects and types of chemical processes to reduce impacts
green chemistry7
Green Chemistry
  • Green chemistry is the use of chemistry for pollution prevention
  • Design of chemical products and processes that are more environmentally benign
  • Reduction or elimination of the use or generation of hazardous substances associated with a particular synthesis or process
importance of green chemistry
Importance of Green Chemistry
  • 2 billion lbs. of chemicals were released to air land and water (USEPA) in 1994
  • Data includes only 365 of 70,000 chemicals available in commerce
  • Environmental and hazardous wastes operations => economic burden
    • environmental expenditures : cost of doing business
    • 100-150 billion $ / year for remediation in US alone
    • shift financial resources from costs to research & development
  • Promise of Green Chemistry to lower overall costs associated with environmental health and safety
areas of research
Areas of Research
  • Feedstocks / Starting Materials
  • Reagents or Transformations
  • Reaction Conditions
  • Final Product
    • inter-related, separated for incremental improvements
feedstocks starting materials
Feedstocks / Starting Materials
  • select and utilize more benign starting materials
    • reduction in amount used
    • reduction of intrinsic toxicity through structural modification / replacement
  • risks can be reduced through protective gear and control techniques, but GC may be more cost effective and safer
  • Alternative Synthetic Pathways AwardFlexsys America L.P.New Process for 4-Aminodiphenylamine
  • Academic AwardTerrence J. CollinsCarnegie Mellon UniversityTAML™ Oxidant Activators: General Activation of Hydrogen Peroxide for Green Oxidation Technologies
  • Eliminate use of acids to break initial bonds
  • Phosgene replacement
alternative reagents
Alternative Reagents
  • Assessment of the hazard of reagent
  • Evaluation of synthetic transformation associated with use of specific reagents
    • determine product sensitivity
    • reaction efficiency
  • Improve reaction efficiency
  • Reduce needed quantity
    • eg. Choose catalytic reagent to stoichiometric reagent
  • Use of visible light as reagent
  • Alternative Synthetic Pathways AwardLilly Research LaboratoriesPractical Application of a Biocatalyst in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

alternative reaction conditions
Alternative Reaction Conditions
  • Reduce or eliminate solvents used in reaction media, separations, formulations
    • use of supercritical fluids as solvents
    • able to tune supercritical fluids by choosing critical region to conduct chemistry
  • Use aqueous solvent systems in place of organic solvents in chemical manufacturing
  • Use Supercritical CO2 as a solvent
  • Reduce operating temperatures
  • Must evaluate impact on case by case basis
