Syllabus
Target skills and knowledge: At the end the student will know:
1. the 12 principles of green chemistry;
2. the tools for assessing process greenness and evaluating innovative greener alternative;
3.the application of innovative materials and technologies for the development of greener routes to improve industrial processes and to produce important products.
At the end, the student will be able to assess the greenness of a chemical process and propose greener alternative.
Examination methods: The written exam comprises a numerical exercise and some questions (4 or 5) to evaluate:
• the knowledge of green chemistry principles and their application to identify critical features of the process;
• the ability to compare several processes producing the same product in terms of sustainability;
• the ability to propose innovative materials, methods or tools to increase the sustainability of a given process.
Assessment criteria: Proficiency in:
- knowledge of the course contents
- ability to analyse critical aspects in term of sustainability of a chemical process
- ability to suggest alternative greener solutions
- clarity
Course unit contents: Green chemistry as a tool for sustainable development (4h).The twelve green chemistry principles with reference to real industrial processes, their critical features and greener solutions (28h). Catalysis and "greeness" (4h). Chemicals and fuels from renewable resources (6h. Alternative forms of energy (microwave, sonochemistry, photochemistry) (6h).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Classroom lecture using also slides; discussion of case studies
Additional notes about suggested reading: The slides used during the lessons will be available for download in moodle. Other books will be suggested during classroom lecture and will be reported on course slides
