People tend to overlook the environment. They know it's important but fail to understand how important it really is. Without a healthy environment, we wouldn't have fields like physics, economics, medicine, engineering, and education — because there wouldn't be any humans. Today, the environment is changing at a faster rate than at almost any other time since humans have been on Earth. As a result, we need people who can study the environment and ensure it's healthy for everyone, no matter where they live.
Basics of Green Chemistry

Skip to content. Skip to navigation. The PhD project aims to examine key innovations that inform green chemical research and promote the agenda of sustainability within chemistry in the UK. Specifically, it will investigate the main principles that govern green and sustainable chemical innovation and the barriers to implementation and adoption of sustainable processes within chemical research. The research student is expected to conduct extended multi-sited fieldwork on two new green and sustainable chemical projects in the Department of Chemistry, University of Leicester: extracting gold from ores and recycling of Li-ion batteries. The student will collect various empirical materials that document the emergence of innovation in these projects, their economics and the role that different actors--such as industry stakeholders, civil society organisations, engineers, policy makers, regulators--play in the making and development of green and sustainable innovation. The student will be expected to complete training in green chemistry, social science research and sustainability studies.
Green Chemistry Grants
Under this programme, the following activities will be supported:. These proposals should either have significant novelty or should result in potentially exploitable processes. The above areas are only illustrative in nature.
We know that this is a very challenging time for everyone, for many different reasons. If any aspect of the publishing process is worrying you — for example you think you may struggle to meet a pre-determined deadline — please let us know, and we will work out an answer together. You can find details about how to access information remotely in this step-by-step guide. The guide will also help if for any reason you have difficulty accessing the content you want. Green Chemistry provides a unique forum for the publication of innovative research on the development of alternative green and sustainable technologies.
