Abstract: Preliminary Knowledge Analysis of First-Year Undergraduate Student at UIN Walisongo on Green Chemistry Concept. Green chemistry is a form of application of chemistry in reducing or minimizing environmental problems. The implementation of green chemistry in education aims to increase student awareness of the environment, especially early-level students (students in semesters 1 and 3). This study aimed to analyze the knowledge of the green chemistry concept of early-level students of the Chemistry Education Study Program at UIN Walisongo Semarang. The research method used is a qualitative descriptive method. Respondents from the study were early-level students of the Chemistry Education at UIN Walisongo Semarang, totaling 52 people. The selection of respondents was based on the fact that the students of that class had already received a Chemistry Education course for Sustainable Chemistry, which included applying the concept of green chemistry. The average result of the study was 84%, with a positive response. The study results can be used as a reference for further research.


Keywords: green chemistry, sustainable development, first-year undergraduate students.
