Nobel Laureate to speak at American Chemical Society green chemistry conference
Date:6/2/2011

Ei-ichi Negishi, Ph.D., recipient of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, will be among the featured speakers at the 15th Annual Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference, June 21-23, in Washington, D.C. The three-day meeting will be held at the Capital Hilton Hotel, just two blocks north of the White House. The conference, which regularly attracts scientific leaders from around the world, is sponsored by the American Chemical Society's Green Chemistry Institute (ACS GCI).

Negishi, the Herbert C. Brown Distinguished Professor of Organic Chemistry at Purdue University, shared the 2010 Nobel Prize for helping to develop techniques to synthesize complex carbon molecules that have had an enormous impact on the manufacture of medicines and other products. During his conference keynote address, he will discuss his vision of green chemistry and its role in ensuring a sustainable future.

In addition to Negishi, other scheduled keynote speakers are:

  • Paul Anastas, Ph.D., U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science Advisor and Assistant Administrator for the agency's Office of Research and Development.
  • H. Fisk Johnson, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of S.C. Johnson, Inc.
  • Martyn Poliakoff, Ph.D., professor of chemistry at the University of Nottingham in England and Foreign Secretary for the Royal Society of Chemistry.
  • Jane Banyus, a natural sciences writer, innovation consultant, and co-founder of the Biomimicry Guild.

This year's conference theme is "Global Challenges, Green Chemistry Solutions." The conference is an official International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011) event. IYC 2011 is a worldwide celebration of the achievements of chemistry and its contributions to the well-being of humankind. It was proclaimed by the 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations.

As part of that celebration, participants in this conference will explore recent innovations and applications at the cutting edge of
