Aqueous and Biobased Solvents
Design is intentional. If a chemical contains a hazard that is not intended, it is a design flaw. Yet, many of our made-made chemicals contain hazards to humans or the biosphere by accident or lack of thoughtful design.
As we understand the underlying basis of hazard to human health and the environment at the molecular level, we can design to avoid it. As we understand the properties which enable chemical accidents and other adverse consequences, we can and must design to avoid these outcomes where possible.
