Iupac names 10 chemistry innovations that will change the world


INTRO: For it’s 100th anniversary, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (Iupac) has released a list of 10 chemistry innovations – technologies in between discovery and commercial product – they think will change the world. Ranging from the obvious, plastic recycling for example, to the more obscure, like reactive extrusion, a panel of five judges from industry and academia selected 10 technologies that have the potential for making the planet more sustainable. Some, like flow chemistry, are already seeing widespread use while others, like solid state batteries, are still in their infancy. Iupac will release the next line-up of world-changing innovations in 2020. Nominations will open in July this year. (MORE)

The 10 chemistry innovations: Nanopesticides, Enantioselective organocatalysis, Solid-state batteries, Flow chemistry, Mechanochemistry and reactive extrusion, MOFs, Directed enzyme evolution, Turning polymers back into monomers, Reversible deactivation radical polymerisation, 3D bioprinting
