Postgraduate Summer School on Green Chemistry    —   July 7-14, 2018   —   Venice, Italy

(International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry)  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.
