Ten years of green chemistry at the Gordon Research Conferences: frontiers of science
The 2006 Green Chemistry Gordon Research Conference will mark the 10th anniversary of Green Chemistry GRCs. The GRC format, with its strong emphasis on discussion and interaction, has been especially suited to green chemistry which, more than most areas of chemistry research, depends on true interdisciplinarity for success. The ingenuity and innovation displayed by the green chemistry community in developing solutions to real manufacturing problems has been breathtaking. This success has been mirrored in the ten years of the Green Chemistry GRCs, and the 2006 conference will provide a glimpse at how green chemistry will develop over the next ten years.
