About this video
The field of catalysis in chemistry was historically dominated by the use of transition metal catalysts. Due to a unique set of properties, precious metals in particular have played an integral role in developing catalysts for new modes of chemical bond activation and formation. One major and inherent drawback of precious metals, however, is their scarcity; in order to transition chemistry to a more sustainable use of the world’s limited resources, finding alternative strategies for catalysis is a major driving force in contemporary research. In this spirit, this webinar features talks about four areas of sustainable catalysis from leaders in their respective fields, highlighting state-of-the-art approaches and providing guidance for future developments in these areas of research.
