Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. The conference must be located in a country represented in IUPAC by a National Adhering Organization. See program details.

Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry

  • This event has passed.

The present edition of the Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry will be managed by IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development (ICGCSD).

This edition of the Post-graduate Summer School on Green Chemistry will provide the participants with an understanding of the latest developments of the concepts and management of green and sustainable chemistry.

Lectures will be at the level of state-of-the-art research contributions in the Green Chemistry field, but they will also cover background material. Existing clean chemical processes, case histories, and topics related to current research in Green Chemistry will be explained in order to familiarize students with the strategies behind designing “greener” synthetic routes.

Main topics will be:

Chemistry beyond chlorine
New reaction pathways
Exploitation of renewable resources
Green Chemistry for cultural heritage restoration
A research policy session will be addressed to the issues which steer the Green Chemistry at the industrial, academic and governmental levels. Also in view of the need to anticipate the evolution of environmental regulations, for the chemical industry, for the cultural heritage field and metrics on green syntheses.

For more information, please visit the Summer School website or contact the chair, Pietro Tundo (Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia – Venice, Italy).
