The 2023 IUPAC-Zhejiang NHU International Award for Advancements in Green Chemistry was announced and presented during the 49th IUPAC World Chemistry Congress in The Hague, The Netherlands. Professor Xile Hu from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Switzerland won the experienced chemist award, while Dr. Mirabbos Hojamberdiev from Technical University Berlin, Dr. Jiayu Peng from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Dr. Zhe Zhuang, from Stanford University, respectively, received the young award.
The IUPAC-Zhejiang NHU International Award for Advancements in Green Chemistry is presented every two years. Each time, one award is presented to an experienced chemist (10000 $US), and three awards are given to three young chemists (2000 $US each) for their significant contributions to the field of green chemistry. The previous awards were presented in 2019 and 2021, respectively.
Professor Xile Hu has been invited to deliver a plenary lecture at the 10th IUPAC International Conference on Green Chemistry, 25-29 October 2024, Beijing, China, and the three young award winners have been invited to give invited lectures at this conference. In addition, each of the award winners is expected to write a short critical review for Pure and Applied Chemistry.
