Environmental Solutions?

Synopsis
The greenhouse effect and the ozone hole are two environmental issues caused by the complex chemical interaction of gases in the atmosphere. Carbon and nitrogen oxides from car exhausts and chlorine from CFCs are the major chemical culprits. The programme shows how organic chemists are developing ozone-friendly CFCs and petrol alternatives for cleaner combustion fuels.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
