Green toxicology is the application of predictive toxicology to the production of chemicals with the specific intent of improving their design for hazard reduction.
The twelve principles of green chemistry outline a strategy to reduce hazard through molecular and process design. Reducing toxicity is at the core of green chemistry and sustainability, therefore the input of toxicologists early in the chemical enterprise is essential to inform the choices of molecular designers in selecting less hazardous design strategies.
