Slimming the Waste-line in Large Molecule Syntheses

ACS Webinars

Historically, green chemistry has had its roots in small molecule chemical process design. However, some of the boldest opportunities lie ahead in the peptide, oligonucleotide and large molecule modalities. With sustainability as a recognized priority across industries, the ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable (GCIPR) has taken up the lead in advancing the enterprise with high aspirations.

Join Senior Research Advisor Michael Kopach of Eli Lilly and Company during this free interactive broadcast as he demonstrates why the opportunities for innovations in sustainable chemistry for peptides and oligonucleotide syntheses are much greater than for small molecule chemistry.
