Paper by Julie Haack Featured in the ACS Nexus – Green Chemistry Newsletter

A research paper by UO Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty Julie Haack was featured in an article in the March edition of the Nexus – Green Chemistry Newsletter titled “Effectively Communicating the Need for Green Chemistry.”

The paper, “If Chemists Don’t Do It, Who Is Going To?” Peer-driven Occupational Change and the Emergence of Green Chemistry, was co-written by Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Andrew J. Nelson, Andrew G. Earle, Julie A. Haack, and Douglas M. Young. It was first published January 19, 2017 in Administrative Science Quarterly.

In their paper, Dr. Haack and her colleagues investigate the emergence and growth of “green chemistry”—an effort by chemists to encourage other chemists to reduce the health, safety, and environmental impacts of chemical products and processes—and explore how green chemistry advocates influence how their peers do their work.
