Incorporation of Pollution Prevention Principles Into Chemical Science Education

This 84-page thesis was written by a graduate student in environmental and industrial health. It begins with a review of the literature on "green chemistry" and chemical science education. Next, the author proposes a methodology for chemical life cycle analyses that can be incorporated into university-level chemistry curricula. The main section of this document is a case study applying that methodology in a comparison of the environmental impacts of producing and using ethylene glycol-based antifreeze vs. a similar product made of propylene glycol. Includes numerous tables, figures, and appendices. View abstract
