Description

Sustainable chemistry is basically doing more with less: reducing the environmental impact of products and processes, optimising or rather completely avoiding the use of limited raw materials and minimising waste. This course will introduce the importance of catalysis, energy and green materials in the context of reducing the impact that synthetic chemistry has on our planet.
