Making Organic Chemistry More Sustainable

Organizer: David Leahy, Associate Director, Takeda Pharmaceuticals

The development of new synthetic methodologies and strategies has been the cornerstone upon which sustainable industrial processes are built. The pure research advances arising from academia fuel the world’s industrial innovation, while also training the scientific leaders of tomorrow. This special session highlights the research of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows across the broader organic chemistry community, which has the potential to impact sustainable industrial chemistry.

Presenters in the session received travel funding from the ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable.
