However, the key challenge here is that the problems that require complex thinking are also complex. They are typically ill-defined and new, and depend on multiple variables, which are interconnected. The difficulty lies not only in the number of variables but also in the degree in which they are interconnected. We can now recognize that a green synthesis, which requires the consideration of the 12 principles of green chemistry, is an example of a complex problem. The interconnection between the 12 principles is dependent also to a degree on the type of synthesis.

3 critical thinking Critical thinking has various definitions and numerous attributes, which is not surprising, because it is a subject of an entire relatively recent educational movement. We select here some definitions and descriptions that are representative and are useful for green chemistry applications. Critical thinking is used to decide if a claim is true, partially true or false. It is concerned primarily with judging the true value of statements and is seeking errors. It is thinking that is rational, open-minded, and informed by evidence.

Starting from compound 1, which has a keto and ester groups, we need to make compound 2, in which the ester group is converted to an alcohol, whereas the keto group is preserved. 12. The reaction requires a reduction of the ester group to an alcohol. Two reducing agents that students are generally familiar with are sodium borohydride, NaBH4, and lithium aluminum hydride, LiAlH4. The latter will reduce the ester group, whereas the former will not. 12 Transformation of a keto ester 1 to a keto alcohol 2.
