A better chemistry for a better life: what can bring "green chemistry" ?

October 17, 2017


Chemistry is a science, it is also an industrial sector. It is largely involved in everyday life and products (energy, construction, transport, food, hygiene, health, etc.). In the context of sustainable development, limitation of pollutants, this omnipresence of chemistry in modern life pushes chemists to minimize its impact on humans and nature. The objectives of "Green chemistry" are to innovate through cleaner processes and less hazardous products, low toxicity, low impact on both natural resources and the greenhouse effect.

The conference will illustrate the emergence of this new scientific field, transdisciplinary in chemistry, designated by several terms: sustainable chemistry, green chemistry, eco-responsible chemistry, ecological chemistry, clean chemistry. More particularly, the use of biomass as a raw material for chemistry, which is one of the many stakes of this approach, and of which Yves Queneau is a specialist, will be addressed.

About the Speaker:

Professor Yves QUENEAU

Pr Yves Queneau is senior scientist at the CNRS and director, since 2011, of the organic and bioorganic chemistry group at the INSA Lyon (Institut National des Sciences Appliquées).

His research activities cover biomass valorization, glycochemistry and molecules of biological interest. He is author and co-author of more than 115 publications, book chapters and editorial, 7 patents and has given more than 200 invited conferences. He also co-organizes since 2014 the Sino-French congress FC2GCHEM “French-China to Green Chemistry”.
