Chemistry for Sustainable Development

26–30 July 2010


The International Conference on Pure and Applied Chemistry (ICPAC 2010) will be held 26–30 July 2010 at La Plantation Resort and Spa in Mauritius. The organizing committee has adopted the theme “Chemistry for Sustainable Development” for this event.

Due to progress in science and technology, the world has condensed into a global village. However, many nations are facing crises due to tremendous increases in the demand for energy, food, and water. Chemistry has a crucial role to play in sustaining the development of our planet.
