Addressing world pollution at molecular level
We must design products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of toxic substances
Prof. Anastas, founder of Green Chemistry Principles
Today’s pollution problem is primarily caused by man-made products and the waste generated while producing or disposing them.
ViridisChem is addressing this problem through a portfolio of web-based software tools which provide toxicity-focused chemical and process analysis to guide the scientists from all industries towards environmentally-friendly product development.
See all the physical and toxicological properties, GHS scores, and regulatory concerns about any chemical with a click of a button. No need to access SDS sheets, or refer to multiple toxicity databases.
Evaluate the toxicity of chemicals through easy-to-understand visual graphs. Scores are calculated based on the United Nation, EPA and EU-REACH Guidelines. Simply put, bigger the area, more toxic the chemical is!
Our powerful “multi-criteria search”, allows you to identify better/greener chemicals based on functional group, property values, GHS classification, or chemical category.
During early product design, evaluate the toxicity of new molecules, see how a structural modification may affect the chemical toxicity. Be aware of the potential toxicity problems before you study the molecule.
Quickly obtain per-step analysis of complex processes that includes quantifiable measures of process sustainability in terms of cost, toxicty, and waste scores. Compare alternate process choices and identify where and how process improvements can be made.
