We offer a range of environmental and green chemistry research. Many of our faculty members have environment-focused projects and incorporate green chemistry principles and sustainability goals into their research objectives. Particular strengths are in the areas of atmospheric particles, aquatic photochemistry, reactive surfaces, development of new green chemistry curricula and outreach materials, renewable feedstocks, and analytical methods.
As a signer of the Green Chemistry Commitment, our department has incorporated green chemistry laboratory experiments into its courses and developed an upper division green chemistry lecture course in order to educate future chemists about cutting-edge sustainable technologies.
Many of our researchers work closely with the Institute on the Environment to discover solutions to Earth's most pressing environmental problems by conducting transformative research, developing the next generation of global leaders and building world-changing partnerships. This creates a synergistic environment for addressing issues that transcend any single discipline, program or institution by bringing together thought leaders from private and public sectors and the University.
