4th Green Chemistry and the Consumer Symposium: Measuring Green
The Green Chemistry Network will hold the 4th Green Chemistry and the Consumer Symposium on 28th June 2007 at the King’s Manor in York, UK.
The Green Chemistry and the Consumer annual symposia bring together a diverse audience of representatives from consumer product supply chains, academics, NGOs, government, trade associations, media and other stakeholders to learn about green chemistry solutions for sustainable product supply chains.
The fourth symposium, 'Measuring Green: Green performance indicators across the chemical product lifecycle', will explore key criteria for measuring the green credentials of chemical products at all stages in their lifecycle, including case studies on successful methods developed by industry and challenges in practice.
Speakers include representatives from GlaxoSmithKline, BASF, InterfaceFLOR, Ecover, B&Q, GreenBlue and Biffa. The symposium is open to all and is aimed at organisations and individuals with an interest in green chemistry and sustainable chemical products.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems
Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
