We are delighted to see that Amy Naylor Randles from Cohort 8 has been featured in the 14th Edition of the Green Chemistry Summer School in Venice, which took place 3-8 July 2022:
“I was lucky enough to travel from the University of Nottingham to the 14th GCPSS in Venice with 7 of my fellow CDT colleagues, funded by the ESPRC CDT in Sustainable Chemistry.
This opportunity allowed us to engage with other young green chemists from a plethora of countries, where we were able to discuss global and regional sustainability challenges and green chemistry project ideas. The many poster sessions and social events provided a platform for these detailed discussions. Two of my colleagues were given the opportunity to present their
first poster titled ‘A greener route to the synthesis of monoarylphosphinic acids’. It was a privilege to present to a diverse range of young green chemists and this led to the development of many new ideas. The rest of the 14th GCPSS was filled with inspiring talks from some of the most prestigious green chemists from around the globe, including Professor Paul T. Anastas, alongside lots of good food, drink, and sunshine!” By Amy Naylor Randles
