ACS Petroleum Research Fund

While the ACS Petroleum Research Fund (PRF) does not have a specific category of green chemistry research, several green chemistry projects have been supported by PRF. The program welcomes applicants with high quality fundamental research in the petroleum or fossil fuels fields which may have a "green" focus.
