About the Conference

The bilateral workshop is to bring together chemists from India and France with complementary and diverse expertise in the general areas of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, green chemistry, and sustainability, comprising the efficient and safe fabrication of useful complex molecules and materials, the production/storage of renewable energy, biomass transformations, biodegradable polymer formation/recycling and the development of new catalytic systems based on abundant metals. The workshop will facilitate the exchange of information and ideas and promote the germination of collaborative projects aimed at innovating and discovering new applications in advanced catalysts, clean synthetic methods, catalytic processes for industry. It will thus foster the creation of a task force in this field to the profit of our society.
