Professor Paul T. Anastas is credited with establishing the field of green chemistry in 1991 during his time working for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the Chief of the Industrial Chemistry Branch and as the founding Director of the U.S. Green Chemistry Program. Dr. Anastas has published widely on topics of science through sustainability
Vania Zuin, professor at the Federal University of São Carlos (Brazil), will present a plenary lecture on Green Chemistry entitled: "Theoretical and fundamental aspects of technologies"
Nora Ventosa, scientific researcher of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) of CSIC and delegate at the EuChemS Division of Green and Sustainable Chemistry, will present a lecture on the activities and mission of the EuChemS Division of Green and Sustainable Chemistry next to the activities of her team. The lecture is entitled: "EuChemS Division of Green and Sustainable Chemistry/Application of green CO2 for the preparation of nanostructured materials"
During the 1st European Sample Preparation e-Conference, a Satellite Event will deal with the preparation of manuscripts. Contributors are:
Prof. František Švec giving a lecture entitled: “Preparation of manuscript that is likely to be accepted in high end journal” and
Prof. Manuel Mirò giving a short-lecture entitled: “How to write a scientifically sound review article-Tips and tricks"
