Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Green chemistry is an increasingly important topic of research which sees scientists striving to develop new strategies to minimise the impact of organic chemistry on the environment. This one-day symposium brings together industrial and academic experts to present some cutting edge synthetic approaches towards sustainable chemistry. The application of green chemistry in the discovery and development of novel pharmaceutical drugs will also be discussed.
Attendees

The meeting will be of interest to all synthetic, organic, medicinal and process chemists. Seasoned green chemists, those with an interest in learning more about green chemistry and also those sceptical of its application should attend.
