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.
The event has received the sponsorship of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
The Summer School will be in part hosted at the prestigious Palazzo Ducale thanks to the collaboration with the Superintendence of Archeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for the City of Venice and Lagoon.
The second prestigious location is the 6th Century Cultural Centre Don Orione Artigianelli, inside an old monastery, in a private and quiet place in the city centre of Venice, behind Gallerie dell’Accademia with direct overview on the Zattere quayside and on Giudecca Canal.
