    The Role of Government Policy in Supporting the Adoption of Green/Sustainable Chemistry Innovations

    This report was initiated by the OECD’s Sustainable Chemistry Issue Team. Previous work within the OECD attempted to use patent data to better understand innovative activity in sustainable chemistry. However, more information and analysis is needed to understand the dynamics of innovation in this area, especially from the industrial perspective. In order to begin the process in a preliminary way, researchers from the Yale Center for

    Case Study: Assessment of an Extended Chemical Category, the Short-chain Methacrylates, Targeted on Bioaccumulation

    This case study intends to illustrate this concept for the short chain methacrylates,originally composed of four chemicals, for the bioaccumulation endpoint. The OECD QSAR Toolbox identified about 160 chemicals potentially falling within the applicability domain of the original category, and the hypothesis tested in this case study is the possibility to predict the bioaccumulation potential for untested members of the category. The
