an environmentally "benign by design" approach to all aspects of
the chemical industry. The course will examine the possibilities
of renewable feedstocks, recycling, green oxidants, biocatalysts,
solvent choice, and other approaches to reducing the impact of chemical manufacture
on the environment, including waste toxicity reduction, and the
ideal of zero waste production. Internet-based information resources
will be incorporated.Distance education students will be required
