A brief description of the green laboratory program, including the specific initiatives selected above:

-Fume hoods beep at us if the sash is open and the lights are off.
-We have retrofit valves on most sinks in the bathrooms as well as reverse osmosis water that does not have the ability to be left on because it is only on while your hand is on the lever.
-We recently moved to ordering only what will be used in the upcoming years. We also have a system in place where chemicals checked by either myself or Mark to see if the chemical is present in the building before we order more. We also dispose of waste properly through waste disposal companies, or by working with NEW water when we put them down the drain. Some of this information is published on page 39 of our Chemical Hygiene Plan.
-Organic Chemistry II (Chem 305) teaches the following “Green Chemistry: Oxidation of Alcohols and Aldehydes.
