RSC Presidential Lecture (Rescheduled)

13 September 2022 16:00-18:00, Southampton, United Kingdom

We are delighted to host Professor Tom Welton (Imperial College, London), outgoing president of the RSC, who will give a talk titled 'Chemistry for a Sustainable World'.  The talk will commence at 16:00 and will be followed by a buffet.  Note that this event has been rescheduled from 22nd June.  A synopsis of the talk is given below:

Sustainable Chemistry is both the implementation of sustainability in the production and use of chemicals (Green Chemistry) and the application of chemistry and chemical products to enable sustainable development. The UN Sustainable Development Goals provide a framework for the creation of a sustainable common future, in which all the world’s needs are met without compromising the abilities of future generations to provide for their needs. The chemical sciences and chemical scientists have much to offer to all of the SDGs. In this talk I will explore how chemistry is currently contributing to achieving the SDGs, some of the challenges to still be faced and the research that is being conducted to overcome those challenges.
