Abstract: Green chemistry is the utilization of a set of principles that reduces or eliminates the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture, and application of chemical products. The alternative synthetic pathways that are made available through the practice of green chemistry promote sustainable living and are usually more cost effective than more traditional methods. In order to make chemists aware of alternative pathways and how to evaluate them it is important to incorporate green principles into the chemistry curriculum. In this thesis I evaluate and reproduce three experiments for use in an undergraduate organic chemistry lab that demonstrate greener methods of synthesis while at the same time teaching the same lessons as a traditional organic chemistry laboratory class. These experiments utilize microwave-enhanced procedures, more benign solvents (room temperature ionic liquids, linear polymers, and a solvent-free environment), recyclable catalysts, and reagent substitution.
