- Understanding of the problems that have caused the various environmental disasters.
- Understanding of thee use and limits of green metrics.
- Understanding the possible uses of a green chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry (green solvents, green synthesis of ibuprofen)
- Understanding the different synthetic approach of the refinery vs. biorefinery.
- To Know the limits and advantages of using bioplastics
- To know the chemistry of chlorine and the possible substitutes of this molecule i.e., the dialkylcarbonates
- Understand the main organic pollutants and the methods used to remove them from contaminated areas.
2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
- Knowing how to correctly use the knowledge acquired for the identification of environmental problems related to a synthesis conducted in the laboratory and on an industrial scale
- Knowing how to use green metrics appropriately.
- Being able to discuss the possible uses of green chemistry in the industrial field (pharmaceutical industry, biorefinery, chlorine industry).
- Know how to apply the knowledge acquired in discriminating advantages and problems in the use of plastics and bioplastics.
- Know how to recognize the main organic pollutants and correctly report some methods for their removal from contaminated areas.
3. Ability to judge
- Ability to argue the advantages of green synthesis compared to synthesis commonly used in the laboratory or in the chemical industries.
- Ability to critically argue the use of green metrics
- Ability to argue the advantages and disadvantages of chlorine chemistry compared to that of dialkyl carbonates.
4. Communication skills
- Know how to communicate the knowledge acquired on green products and processes, using appropriate terminology.
- Knowing how to interact with peers and with the tutor, in a critical and respectful way.
5. Learning skills
- Knowing how to take notes and share them in a collaborative way with your colleagues.
- Knowing how to critically consult the reference texts and the bibliography contained in them.
1. Introduction to Green chemistry;
