Warmest welcome to the 5th IUPAC International Conference on Green Chemistry, that will be held in Durban (South Africa), 17-21 August 2014.
The main objective of the conference is to emphasize the importance of green chemistry for sustainable development, and to promote novel research and collaborations, by bringing together experts and interested parties from all over the world and from diverse bodies – from the academia to the industry and to governments. The conference will be a multidisciplinary event considering all the major areas of green chemistry, including green synthesis processes, catalysis, environmentally benign solvents, energy storage, biofuels, green chemistry education, policies, and many other interesting topics. Interfaces with other sciences and other research areas will be actively encouraged. Special attention will also be given to the roles of green chemistry in fast-growing economies and to the promotion of green chemistry in the African continent.
The natural beauties of the city and its surrounding areas and the rich cultural heritage of the country offer an excellent opportunity for combining an exciting high-quality scientific experience with interesting and pleasant tourist experiences.
The program for the conference has now been completed.
