Carnegie Mellon University hosts ACS-PRF summer school on green chemistry

MEDIA ADVISORY:

EVENT: The American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund (ACS-PRF) is sponsoring a summer school on green chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University. Close to 100 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from countries including Canada, the United States, Uruguay, Brazil and Mexico will come to Carnegie Mellon for a week of immersion in green chemistry, the science of replacing polluting practices with non-toxic manufacturing approaches. Participants will attend lectures by leading scientists from academia and industry, conduct laboratory work and engage in group exercises to understand green chemistry problems. With only a handful of U.S. academic centers offering curricula in green chemistry, the summer school provides a unique opportunity for junior chemists from across the Americas to practice in this field. Five Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards have been given to local academic researchers and companies, making Pittsburgh an excellent location for the summer school.

WHEN: July 31-August 7, 2004

WHERE: During the day, lectures will be held in the chemistry lecture hall in Doherty Hall. In the evenings, lectures will be held in the Mellon Institute auditorium. Participants will be in the laboratories in Doherty Hall 27 p.m. Monday, August 2.

A campus map is available online: www.cmu.edu/home/visitors/map/index.html

WHO: The program is being hosted by Terry Collins, Thomas Lord Professor of Chemistry and director of the Institute for Green Oxidation Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon. Fifteen of the top researchers and educators in green chemistry are presenting, including scientists from Dupont, Bayer, the University of Uruguay and the ACS.
