Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to evaluate whether a given transformation or process can be considered as environmentally benign and sustainable, and which parameters need to be tuned in order to reach this goal.

Subject of course

1.) The 12 principles of green chemistry (Prevention / Atom economy / Less hazardous chemical synthesis / Designing safer chemicals / Safer solvents and auxiliaries / Design for energy efficiency / Use of renewable feedstocks / Reduce derivatives / Catalysis / Design for degradation / Real time analysis for pollution prevention / Inherently safer chemistry for accident prevention)

2.) Green Chemistry Metrics (E-Factor, Atom efficiency, Mass Intensity, Space time yield, effective mass yield etc.)

3.) Catalysis (solid acid/base catalysis, zeolites as catalysts, etc.)

4.) Modern metal assisted transformations (C-H activation, catalysis by non-precious metals, nano catalysis, photoredox catalysis, etc.)

5.) Biodegradable polymers

6.) Solvent free reactions

7.) Multistep reactions

8.) Ultrasound chemistry

9.) Flow chemistry

10.) Microwave chemistry

11.) In-line IR monitoring

12.) Biofuels and other fine chemicals from carbohydrates

13.) Mechanochemistry

14.) Enzymatic reactions

15.) Alternative reaction media (Reactions in ionic liquids, supercritical CO2,¿)
