Our chapter is making a lot of efforts to motivate the younger generation towards sustainable development and green chemistry. In this direction, we are also planning to organize a conference for young researchers and students in collaboration with ACS Green Chemistry Institute. Prof. Sharma believes that the bright future of green chemistry lies in the hands of budding researchers. He often says, “the day when every individual become vigilant to incorporate green chemistry in daily practices, my dream of making the planet a better place to live in will come true!”.
Green Chemistry Network Center
GCNC has been actively involved in organizing several international conferences and workshops on crucial issues related to green chemistry. In fact, two International Workshops on Sustainability and Water Quality hosted by: ACS-Global Innovation Imperatives Gii were also organized in the years 2011 and 2014 aimed at finding sustainable and cost-effective solutions to global water quality challenges. Prof. Sharma's (Coordinator GCNC) sincere efforts to popularize green chemistry have won him international fame and recognition. He has published numerous articles (papers as well as reviews) in some of the most reputed international journals. GCNC has previously written several chapters on Green Chemistry Solutions to Water Pollution, Water Quality Issues and Solutions in India, Green Materials for Metal Remediation in Water etc. in RSC Green Chemistry Series and Elsevier Publications.
