  • About the Author

Green Chemistry Network Centre (GCNC) has been established in Delhi University under the recommendation of a panel of world leaders headed by Professor Paul Anastas (known as Father of Green Chemistry) with the following aims:

  • Build up a network for exchange of expertise, discussion and knowledge between industrialists and academicians as well as between chemists and engineers with interests and expertise relevant to Green Chemistry.
  • Prepare and disseminate the educational materials on Green Chemistry for school, college and university levels through specially designed courses (e.g. add-on courses) with special focus on laboratory experiments.
  • Design training not just to expose the chemists to the concepts, principles and methodologies of Green Chemistry but also to empower them to bring this new knowledge back to their institution or industries.
  • Translate existing Green Chemistry materials for broader distribution through the network all over India.
  • GCNC received the prestigious ChemRAWN XIV-GCI Developing and Emerging Nations Grant Award, consecutively for the year 2005, 2006 & 2007 from American Chemical Society's Green Chemistry Institute for these activities.

  • Focuses on ways for greening chemical experiments that lead to production of a less hazardous waste stream, decrease reliance on fume hoods, and make the lab a safe place to work.
  • Provides 19 experiments by showing how the new green method is following green chemistry principles in addition to chemical concepts.
  • Provides interesting pictorial representation of various facts and precautions to be taken.
