Green Chemical Alternatives Wizard

The Wizard is a MIT initiative to reduce the generation of hazardous waste and potential workplace exposures in the labs. It is a web-based tool that is designed to provide chemical alternatives to some of the most commonly used hazardous solvents and substances in research laboratories. The Green Chemical Alternatives Wizard provides over 200 journal references and case studies that detail alternative chemicals and/or processes available for hazardous solvents, reagents, and cleaning agents.
