Abstract: The American Chemical Society (ACS) Education and International Activities Division is currently working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to produce a series of green chemistry educational materials. To date, products include a searchable, online annotated bibliography of green chemistry references; a collection of cases describing real-world green chemistry solutions; and a Web site for green chemistry materials and information. Various workshops, short courses, and symposia have been provided to share the green chemistry story. Two planning conferences of green chemistry experts have been held to provide direction to the project. In addition to an overview of the above products and services, the project goals and future plans will be described, and the ways in which green chemistry concepts are being integrated across the ACS educational programs in general.
