Guides and metrics: Metrics

The CHEM21 metrics toolkit

Following on from the introduction to the metrics toolkit that was developed by the CHEM21 consortium that was provided in Introduction to green metrics, in this video Louise Summerton provides a more detailed overview of the metrics toolkit and how it can be used to assess the greenness of a reaction via a comprehensive and holistic range of criteria.  

The rationale behind the creation of the toolkit and description of the methodologies adopted is available as an open access publication [1] and the Toolkit itself is available in the form of a user friendly excel spreadsheet in the supplementary information of the publication.
