Abstract: The American Chemical Society (ACS) Education and
International Activities Division is currently working with the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency to produce a series of green chemistry
educational materials. To date, products include a searchable, online
annotated bibliography of green chemistry references; a collection of
cases describing real-world green chemistry solutions; and a Web site
for green chemistry materials and information. Various workshops, short
courses, and symposia have been provided to share the green chemistry
story. Two planning conferences of green chemistry experts have been
held to provide direction to the project. In addition to an overview
of the above products and services, the project goals and future plans
will be described, and the ways in which green chemistry concepts are
being integrated across the ACS educational programs in general.
