International Symposium on Green Chemistry
10-13 January 2001, Delhi, India
> Back to Calendar
This symposium will address new products, processes, and services that
attempt to achieve benefits from sustainable development. Such efforts
require approaches that reduce the material and energy intensity of
chemical processes and products, minimize or eliminate dispersion of
harmful chemicals in the environment, maximize use of renewable resources,
and extend durability and recyclability of products in a way that increases
Some of the challenges for chemists include discovering and developing
new synthetic pathways using alternative feedstocks or more selective
chemistry, identifying alternative reaction conditions and solvents
for improved selectivity and energy minimization, and designing less
toxic and inherently safer chemical products. The organizers of the
symposium hope to foster the establishment of industry government
partnerships with universities and international laboratories to design
and implement pollution prevention technologies other than waste management.
Scientific sessions will cover metal complexes for green earth chemistry,
biocatalysis and its use in chemical synthesis, ecofriendly chemical
technologies, greenhouse gases and their elimination, fresh-water ecosystems,
green catalysts and reagents for industrial applications, energy and
environment, and air pollutants and their elimination. Approximately
500 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend
