Making Organic Chemistry More Sustainable: Special Student Session

Organizer: Dan Bailey, Takeda

Cosponsor: ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable

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 undergraduate and graduate students and post-doctoral fellows across the broader organic chemistry community which has the potential to impact sustainable industrial chemistry.

From abstracts submitted to this session, eight students will be selected to:

  • Give a 20-minute oral presentation
  • Receive up to $1000 each in travel reimbursement*

*The 2021 GC&E Conference will be virtual. Accepted student presenters can reimburse registration for this conference ($25). In addition, students may choose to use the remaining travel funds to attend a different in-person ACS chemistry conference later in 2021, or can defer travel to attend the 26th Annual GC&E Conference in Reston, Virginia in 2022. No reimbursements will be accepted after the 2022 GC&E Conference.
