Green Chemistry Editor’s Choice: Helen Sneddon Selects Outstanding Articles. Read now for free

Editorial Board Member Helen Sneddon has selected some outstanding research to share with you from Green Chemistry. Read them now for free until the end of January 2021!

Dr Helen Sneddon read Natural Sciences at Christ’s College, Cambridge University, and stayed at Cambridge to complete her PhD in organic chemistry, on beta-keto-dithianes and their application to the synthesis of natural products, with Professor Steven V. Ley. After postdoctoral work on the asymmetric catalytic chemistry of Palladium (II) with Professor Larry Overman at the University of California, Irvine, she joined GlaxoSmithKline at Stevenage, UK in 2007 as a medicinal chemist, working on respiratory medicines. In late 2011 she founded GSK’s Green Chemistry Performance Unit, a team she continues to lead, looking at improving the environmental sustainability of research and development, and the routes arising from it. She was made Honorary Professor of Sustainable Chemistry at the University of Nottingham in August 2014. She has particular interests in solvent and reagent selection and the development of more efficient transformations.
