This course will give the necessary bases to tackle future developments of green chemistry by showing the evolution of this concept in the last twenty years, spanning from synthesis to catalysis and technology.
This mix of topics are a valuable cultural bridge connecting this course with every precedent one dealing with synthetic, reactivity and catalysis issues.
Knowledge and understanding: the course presents theoretical and practical aspects of the main innovative technologies in synthetic chemistry, with a keep focus on economical and environmental issues.
Communication skills: it is stressed the capacity to acquire a formally rigorous language, it is nurtured the skill to express concepts in a clear and concise fashion.
knowledge and understanding, making judgments: at the end of the program, the student will have developed a critical approach towards the literature of this field as well as for the analysis of the sustainability of a synthetic process.
