When chemists design new molecules for products, they don't immediately consider whether the chemicals will have toxic effects. Traditionally, this has been the responsibility of a toxicologist at a later stage of product development. If the chemist is told they cannot use a chemical, they frequently choose/design another chemical with similar function and structure to the original which often does not decrease the hazard. Rather than defaulting into a continual loop of measuring toxic effects after a product is created, chemists can start understanding how a change to the structure of a molecule can help avoid toxicity while achieving necessary properties and function. They can use predictive screening tools to start the process of designing inherently safer molecules. In the third 75 minute webinar of the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council Green Chemistry Education series, three chemists, Drs. Martin Mulvihill, Jakub Kostal and Nigel Greene will provide an overview of molecular design tools and how it can be used to design safer products.
