    The objective of these experiments is to apply the principles of pollution prevention through the application of Green Chemistry. Green chemistry has been defined as the utilization of a set of principles that reduces and/or eliminates the use/generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and application of chemical products as outlined in the " Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry " developed by Paul Anastas and John Warner in 1998. Besides teaching chemistry, we would like to provide the students an insights into material and energy consumption. We believe that the microwave chemistry based student experiments represent innovativeness, speed, process efficiency, and will enhance the chemistry curriculum by connecting science to the important issue of sustainability.

   The Project was undertaken in connection with a settlement of an enforcement action taken by United States Environmental Protection Agency against New Jersey Institute of Technology.
