Rethinking Chemistry

Rethinking chemistry – we need chemistry to meet global challenges such as climate change, energy transformation or feeding more and more people around the world. But it's not just about making existing procedures and processes better and more sustainable. In many areas we have to break completely new ground, throw the traditional overboard and develop something new, in other words, completely rethink.

For this reason, the GDCh Board decided in 2022 to declare Rethinking Chemistry the GDCh motto. Rethinking Chemistry should provide space for new thoughts and ideas on all subject areas to which chemistry can and must make valuable contributions.

Here you will find a collection of all posts and activities related to Rethinking Chemistry. The compilation is continuously expanded. The latest posts are at the top.
