Title: Green Module for Environmental Chemistry: Antifoulants

URL: http://academic.scranton.edu/faculty/CANNM1/environmental.html

Abstract: This module is primarily adapted for use in an Environmental Chemistry course. In addition this module may also be of interest in Freshman Chemistry (half-life, solubility and concentration units), Biochemistry (biodegradation) and Toxicology (acute toxicity, chronic toxicity, biodegradation).

In Environmental Chemistry this module can be inserted into a discussion on pesticides. Preceding the insertion of the module the following topics should be discussed: Acute and chronic toxicity, Bioconcentration (bioaccumulation) and biomagnification, Biodegradation, Partition coefficients (e.g. Kow),a general discussion of pesticides, insecticides (e.g. organochlorines, organophosphates, carbamates), and herbicides (e.g. phenoxy herbicides and triazines). Discussion and questions, teacher notes, resources, power point presentation and direct references to Green Chemistry principles are included in the module.
