The ACS Pharmaceutical Roundtable of the Green Chemistry Institute is accepting preproposals for its 2011 Research Grant, which provides an investigator with up to $150,000 in funding for one to two years. Proposals will be accepted in the following research areas: chemical transformations of high interest, oxidation/epoxidation reactions without the use of chlorinated solvents, process-related targets, solventless reactor cleaning, and green alternatives to polar aprotic solvents. The selection of the awardee is divided into a preproposal and a full-proposal phase. Preproposals should be submitted to email@example.com by Sept. 15 at 5 PM ET. Investigators invited to submit a full proposal will be notified by Oct. 15; they are due by Nov. 5 at 5 PM ET. For instructions on how to submit a proposal, visit www.acs.org/gcipharmaroundtable.
