Lemonade, juice and mineral water often come in PET bottles. While these are practical and functional, their production is complex and not necessarily sustainable. The starting material for terephthalic acid, which is used to produce saturated polyesters such as PET (Polyethylene terephthalate), is more
A research team at Uppsala University has resurrected several billion-year-old enzymes and reprogrammed them to catalyse completely different chemical reactions than their modern versions can manage. The method can be used to develop sustainable solutions within biotechnology, such as for enzyme bio more
Although organic plastics are not harmful to the environment themselves, toxic substances are often used during their synthesis. TU Wien shows - there is another way. Many materials that we use every day are not sustainable. Some are harmful to plants or animals, others contain rare elements that wi more
The efficiency of diluted acids for digestion of organic samples was tested as an alternative to common digestion procedures more
New completely green biofuels with rapeseed oil as main component were formulated. They not only fulfil the principles of green chemistry and thus do not contain any environmentally harmful additives, but also match the currently valid standards for biodiesel regarding their physicochemical properti more
Constructing carbon–carbon bonds through oxidative cross-coupling between two hydrocarbon compounds is regarded as a foundational issue in green chemistry. High atom-economy and mild conditions are long term pursued goals in this field. Herein, we developed a visible-light mediated direct cross-coup more
To date, chemistry has provided more than a hundred million new compounds, most of which are non-natural species that have never existed before and are a source of an enormous amount of pollution. With the increased amount of these “man-made” chemicals being synthesised and environmental concerns of more
Green Chemistry is one of the leading topics in the market today – sustainability gains more and more in importance for the strategic development of companies. The term „Green Chemistry“ was coined in 1991 and aims for the protection of human health and the environment. Twelve principles of Green Chemistry have been formulated to assist chemists and the chemical industry to develop new chemical products and processes or reengineer existing ones to reduce or eliminate industrial pollution. more
Mark Gronnow, born in 1979, studied Chemistry at the University of York and acquired a doctorate in 2005 at the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence. He is a PhD graduate from York with a GSK sponsored project. Having previously worked at the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence as technical operati more
is Manager at ACS GCI. Her work has focused on building green chemistry information databases, managing awards and grants programs, promoting through communication and outreach, and producing educational materials. Prior to joining ACS GCI in 2004, she held an industrial polymer research position at more
during his Keynote Address at this year’s 15th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference and 5th International Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry in Washington, DC. Paul Anastas of Yale University is regarded one of the “fathers” of the original 12 principles of Green Chemistry and more
