The first four recipients of the recently established IUPAC-Zhejiang NHU International Award for Advancements in Green Chemistry go to Mingxin Liu from McGill University, Montreal, Xiaofu Sun from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, Julian West from Rice University, TX, and to Fabio Aricò from the Università Ca’ Foscari, Venezia, Italy. The collaborative award in Green Chemistry has been established to encourage young and experienced chemists, and to emphasize the importance of advancements in Green Chemistry and the value of sciences to human progress.
The awards were presented during the closing ceremony of the IUPAC Congress in Paris on Friday, 12 July 2019. The awardees also attended a special symposium titled “Chemistry Addressing the UN-17 Sustainable Development Goals,” organized by the IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development (ICGCSD).
The winners have been invited to prepare a review article for publication in a coming issue of Pure and Applied Chemistry. The award will be presented every two years and the next call will be announced in 2020, in advance of the 2021 IUPAC Congress to be held in Montreal, Canada, 13-20 August 2021.
