Green Chemistry Grants
A primary objective of the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® (ACS GCI) is to advance research in green chemistry by promoting funding, increasing opportunities, and developing information on the benefits of green chemistry. Our efforts span the spectrum from theory and basic research through application and commercialization of science and technology. ACS GCI also sponsors a number of research fellowships and scientific exchanges through our grants programs.
- 2013 ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable Research Grant for Green Fluorination of Pharmaceutically Relevant Organic Molecules
- ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable is seeking a 1-year R&D commitment focused on developing greener and safer methods, reagents, or engineering solutions (such as flow chemistry) for the selective fluorination of pharmaceutically relevant organic molecules. Proposals are invited from public and private institutions of higher education worldwide. One grant is planned to be awarded and the total award is limited to $50,000 for a grant period of 12 months. Deadline for receipt of proposals is August 21, 2013 at 5 pm EDT (GMT-4).
- 2013 ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable Research Grant for Non-Precious Metal Catalysis
- ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable is seeking a 1-2 year R&D commitment to target identification and development of Non-Precious Metal Catalysis alternatives for widely employed Transition Metal catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, with a focus on substrates that are widely applicable to the pharmaceutical industry. Proposals are invited from public and private institutions of higher education worldwide. This project is intended for a student within the selected Principal Investigator’s research group. One grant is planned to be awarded and the total award is limited to $100,000 for a grant period of 1-2 years. Deadline for receipt of proposals is August 21, 2013 at 5 pm EDT (GMT-4).
- ACS Petroleum Research Fund
While the ACS Petroleum Research Fund 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.
