Unlocking more sustainable futures with green chemistry
Using green chemistry to help reach sustainability goals is becoming an increasingly attractive research area and one in which Oxford is leading the way in developing innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges.
From solving global plastic pollution to improving the performance of rechargeable batteries found in electric cars, ‘green chemistry’ is a truly promising topic.
The range of work highlighted in Isabel Williams’s, article below focuses on tailor made bio derived polymers for energy storage solutions and includes materials from biology that could replace the fossil fuel-derived polymers modern life depends on, zero impact materials for lithium batteries, and replacing the use of waste-generating hazardous processes for chemicals which we can’t yet do without.
