ETC 2020 Speakers
ETC 2020 focuses on catalysis conference targets at bringing scientists and researchers, in a single platform, working in the broad areas of homogeneous, heterogeneous and bio-catalysis including catalysis in bioremediation.
Noble Lecture on ‘Design and Applications of Olefin Metathesis Catalysts’
Prof. Robert H. Grubbs The California Institute of Technology, USA
Prof. Robert H. Grubbsis currently the Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California, where he has been a faculty member since 1978. Before moving to Caltech, he was at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan from 1969 to 1978, where he achieved the rank of Associate Professor.
His main research interests are in organometallic chemistry and synthetic chemistry, particularly the development of novel catalysts for olefin metathesis. In 2005, he was a co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (with R. R. Schrock and Y. Chauvin) for his contributions to the field of olefin metathesis.
In olefin metathesis, a catalyst is used to break the bonds of carbon molecules, which can then re-form to create chemical bonds in new ways, producing new compounds with unique properties. The basic technique can be used for creation of polymers, pharmaceuticals and petrochemicals and has broad applications in areas including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, agriculture, and plastics.
