Can Chemistry Be Green?

Feb 17, 2011
Lecture Theatre X1, School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK.

The first lecture of the series!

Speaker: Prof. Martyn Poliakoff CBE FRS

Modern society relies on the products of the chemical industry but current methods of production are becoming increasingly less sustainable. This talk will outline how chemists are responding to the challenge and describe how Nottingham chemists are beginning to take these ideas to Africa. The talk ends, somewhat provocatively, with a suggestion of what the role of government should be in this area.
