Green Chemistry is an inventive science based on fundamental research towards the development of new
sustainable chemical processes. There is a great need to create a new type of chemistry focused on a new
production system, in order to prepare the younger generation to get a greener future.
The globalization pushes the chemistry community to adopt ethical issues. In this prospect Green Chemistry
can achieve the approval of the society by teaching students to be confident in science and at the same time by
convincing people that it is possible to attain technological development with respect and care for the environment
we live in. This is why it is of foremost importance that education and fundamental research remain strictly connected,
so that democracy and development can grow and progress side by side.
Written for: Postdoctoral researchers in academia in the field of chemistry and particularly organic chemistry,
