In The Field

ACS: Green Grubbs

The theme of this conference is sustainability and green chemistry, loosely speaking. The plenary session this afternoon embraced this theme with gusto and focussed on how green chemistry can save the world.

In case you don’t know what green chemistry is, it’s a field of chemistry that’s all about improving processes by coming up with reaction conditions that use fewer chemicals, in smaller quantities and with less waste. Catalysis is important in orchestrating this change and today’s plenary session featured a giant of catalysis, from Caltech.
