Title: Green chemistry in Russia
Tundo and Valery
and Sergei Zinovyev
Completion Date: 2004 - project completed
This project is aimed at increasing the awareness and interest of
university students in Russian and Former USSR universities and
other educational institutes and industrial chemists towards the
Green/Sustainable Chemistry activities, by highlighting their general
significance and presenting already on-going activities in different
regions of Russia (from the Far East to St. Petersburg). The aim
of project is to produce and disseminate a book like "Green
Chemistry in Africa" and "Green Chemistry in Latin
America. The former book is being disseminated in sub-Saharan Universities.
Presently, the book "Green Chemistry in Latin America"
is being prepared (IUPAC project
The book will be designed for university students and for industrial
chemists and will be written in Russian. This makes it possible
to disseminate the book not only in Russia, but also in Former USSR
republics, such as Byelorussia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
The book plans to underline the relevance of Green/Sustainable chemistry
in general, and to elucidate its potential importance for Russia
and other Former USSR countries.
Pietro Tundo, Valery Lunin and Ekaterina Lokteva will
be the co-editors of the book. External referees may be contacted
to evaluate the various chapters.
Chapters will be contributed by different authors
from Russian Universities and Institutes. They will be written in
an easily understandable way and will present on-going work in the
field of Green Chemistry. The main features will be:
