Chasing Molecules: The Promise of Green Chemistry

Elizabeth Grossman, Author, Chasing Molecules: Poisonous Products, Human Health, and the Promise of Green Chemistry

There is substantial evidence that environmental conditions and environmental pollutants – among them synthetic chemicals in consumer products – have a profound effect on human health. Grossman illustrates the potential for green chemistry to revolutionize the materials we make, how they’re used, and the possible benefits to our health and environment.
