The Workshop on Sustainable Chemistry (hosted by
the Interuniversity Consortium Chemistry for the Environment) was
held at Fondazione Cini (Venice, Italy) from 15-17 October 1998.
This international event was co-sponsored by the governments of
Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States in cooperation with
the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and
the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD (BIAC).
The first aim of the meeting was to create a network of single
IUPAC initiatives in the field of sustainable chemistry among
the CHEMRAWN Committee and the Subcommittee on Synthesis of the
Organic Division. > See the MINUTES of the meeting
