Green Chemistry Grants
A primary objective of the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® (ACS GCI) is to advance research in green chemistry by promoting funding, increasing opportunities, and developing information on the benefits of green chemistry. Our efforts span the spectrum from theory and basic research through application and commercialization of science and technology. ACS GCI also sponsors a number of research fellowships and scientific exchanges through our grants programs.
The ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable is seeking a 1 year R&D commitment to assist the Roundtable’s greener solvents initiative. The R&D will be focused toward developing greener solvent(s) as potential replacements for polar aprotic solvents such as DMF, NMP and DMAc. Proposals are invited from public and private institutions of higher education worldwide. One grant is planned to be awarded to a research group and the total award is limited to $100,000 for a grant period of 12 months. Deadline for receipt of proposals is January 15, 2013 at 5 pm EDT.
- ACS Petroleum Research Fund
While the ACS Petroleum Research Fund does not have a specific category of green chemistry research, several green chemistry projects have been supported by PRF. The program welcomes applicants with high quality fundamental research in the petroleum or fossil fuels fields which may have a "green" focus.
