The Gordon Research Seminar on Green Chemistry is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting is on novel research in Green Chemistry, with an emphasis on industrial applications (but all interesting and innovative topics using a green chemical approach are welcome to be submitted). This second GRS on Green Chemistry is an excellent chance to build a collaborative network within the Green Chemistry community, working together towards a better, sustainable future.
