Research areaChemistry toward environment

Chemistry toward environment is one of the main research directions pursued in ICBMS, covering all fundamental and applied approaches dedicated to the development of new reactions, processes and molecules with lower environmental impact, benign by design in terms of carbon footprint, toxicity, and/or resource sustainability, following the principles of Green and Sustainable Chemistry.

All fields of chemistry are concerned, from bulk chemicals, small functional molecules and polymers to specialty and fine chemicals and chemicals of therapeutic relevance.

This direction covers three main themes:

Research topics ICBMS expertises

Biobased chemistry

Chemistry toward environment

Eco-efficient methods

Chemistry toward environment

valorization of CO2
