The principles and applications of green chemistry - benign by design - to processes and practices are included. The goal of these processes is to achieve hazard-free, waste-free, energy efficient synthesis of non-toxic products whilst maintaining efficiency. Students are introduced to new, cleaner and more efficient chemical processes that have been designed using green chemistry principles. Students continue to use and develop the language of chemistry, its symbols and chemical formulas and equations, to explain observations and data collected from experiments.  This unit is delivered in Year 11.
