Alternatives Wanted for these Toxic Characters

Mr. Softy and 5 other Toxic Characters are under investigation by the EPA.

Green Chemistry is our best hope for designing benign alternatives to these compounds. We can design products such that the characteristics we need (i.e. flexibility, fire-resistance, pest control, etc.) are built in without the human health costs.

Over the next year AGC will produce a series of articles assessing where green chemists are in replacing – or redesigning- these chemicals.
