  • Huge congrats for organizing such a great green chemistry conference. I enjoyed every bit of it. Those two days provided me real feedback about Indian industries approach towards green chemistry. My 180 degree seminar was highly appreciated by the audience and several industries are now in touch with me for some serious collaboration. It was great event and you should have it every year. You should also invite more active academicians in the field. Once again I like to congratulate both of you for the success of this event.
