1. In his IACC-30 summary review article Ken Ball, the Conference chairman, wrote (www.pacslabs.com) about this talk: “Dr. Collins' presentation quickly gained audience attention and reinforced the urgency for increased green chemistry efforts in industry, commerce, and governments as well as in academic curricula. Global scale concerns included: (i) The human population has outgrown the planet. (ii) Our global water cycle is collapsing. Polar ice loss and receding glaciers are increasing ocean levels 1.2-to-1.4 inches per decade. (iii) Burning PVC with waste combustion is the world's biggest source of dioxins. (iv) Simply extracting & processing resources; dumping wastes; and scrapping products can no longer be justified. Generalities were backed by facts and examples. His "status report" on the condition of the world's oceans and sea life was especially disturbing. He commended the progress of the Germans who now obtain 25% of their energy needs from renewable sources. Professor Collins disclosed recent findings that show long term effects to very low amounts of hazardous materials. He mentioned a study wherein parts-per-trillion exposures of pharmaceutical compounds on rats led to subtle reproductive changes such that only females were produced after nine generations. He pointed out that few chemists study toxicology and recent findings indicate that longer term exposures as well as current toxic limits must be further evaluated. Beyond his advocacy for green chemistry, his research team has invented tetra-amido macrocyclic ligand (TAML) catalysts which activate hydrogen peroxide to destroy water many common water and soil contaminants.This approach may obviate more troublesome chlorine chemicals in water treatment applications.”
