Are you a graduate or undergraduate student?
Are you interested in how you can apply green chemistry to your research, lab, or thesis?

With constant news like catalysis breakthroughs and multinational chemical firms transitioning from carbon-intensive petroleum to renewable feedstocks, it is clear that green chemistry is the central science to enable a more sustainable world.  As conventional reagents and key elements become increasingly scarce and costly, it is crucial that young chemists and engineers understand how to make their research greener.

To help meet this need the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® is offering a full-day workshop where current graduate and undergraduate students can learn and practice how to evaluate the impact of chemicals and syntheses, and practice determining the greenest options. Most importantly, participating students have the opportunity to assess their own research with synthetic, analytical, and process experts. Throughout the day students will apply the ideas and tools learned in the workshop to their thesis, undergraduate lab, or even a class lab. Join us to learn how to apply green chemistry and engineering principles in the lab today and create more sustainable solutions for tomorrow!

Date: March 18, 2014
Time: 8:30 AM – 6:00 PM
Cost: $50.00
