Green Solvents Conference, 16 – 19 October 2016, Kiel, Germany

Green Chemistry are pleased to support the 8th Green Solvents Conference which is due to take place on 16th October in Kiel, Germany.

Since its foundation in the year 2002, the “Green Solvents” biennial conference series has been established as a unique platform for the discussion of scientific progress and industrial implementation of advanced fluids in chemical synthesis and processes. Topics include aqueous phases, ionic liquids, supercritical fluids, green organic solvents, liquid polymers, phase-separable reagents and solvent-free processes.

The lecture programme consists of a special Sunday evening lecture, keynote lectures, invited lectures and submitted oral presentations. The poster session plays a key role for the discussion of cutting edge results in the field. Special low rates and support for young scientists and PhD students facilitates their active participation.
