The awards will be presented at the 2023 IUPAC World Chemistry Congress to be held in Netherlands, from 18 to 25 August 2023. Complete applications must be received via the submission form no later than 30 April 2023.
IUPAC-Zhejiang NHU International Award has been established to emphasize the importance of advancements in Green Chemistry and the value of sciences to human progress, and to encourage young and experienced chemists.
IUPAC-Zhejiang NHU International Award
The award covers all the topics of Green Chemistry, such as Green and Renewable Feedstocks, Green Synthetic Routes, Green Solvents, Green Catalysis, Green products, Green Energy, and as broadly defined by OECD as Sustainable Chemistry.*
The IUPAC-Zhejiang NHU International Award has been established in 2019. The first recipients for the early career award were Mingxin Liu from McGill University, Xiaofu Sun from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, and Julian West from Rice University, TX, while the experienced chemist awarded was Fabio Aricò from the Università Ca’ Foscari, Venezia, Italy.
The 2022 IUPAC-Zhejiang NHU International Award includes:
– Three prizes to be awarded to three early career chemists, 2,000 US$ each, who have received their Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree, or completed all Ph.D. requirements including successful defense of their doctoral thesis within the last 2 years (2021-2022). Qualified PhD chemists will be evaluated based on the quality of their theses work. Application requires submission of a completed entry form, including an essay submitted by the entrant that describes his or her research work and places it in perspective relative to current research in Sustainable Chemistry. The essay must be written in English by the entrant and may not exceed 1000 words.
– One prize will be awarded to an experienced chemist (10,000 US$) who should have made significant contribution to green/sustainable chemistry throughout their career.
All scientists are eligible
The Award is presented every two years and the work of the winners in progressing Green Chemistry in their applications will be disseminated to the attention of a wider global audience. All scientists are eligible irrespective of gender and nationality. Winners of this award will be expected to submit a review article for publication in Pure and Applied Chemistry in the year following their award.
The awards will be presented at the 2023 IUPAC World Chemistry Congress to be held in The Hague, The Netherlands, 18-25 August 2023. Complete applications must be received via the submission form no later than 30 April 2023.
