In this webinar from the GC3 Green Chemistry Education series, toxicologists provide an overview of the science of toxicology and how it can be used to design and evaluate safer products.

As companies review or develop new products and production processes, chemicals that may be of concern can be designed out. One field that is essential for the design of safer chemicals, materials and processes is the field of toxicology. Historically, the fields of chemistry and toxicology have worked separately—with one focused on design and the other on environmental health and safety. By bridging the gap between chemistry and toxicology, innovative, safer products can be developed and regrettable substitutions can be avoided.
