lühikokkuvõte: The great challenge in the 21 century chemistry is related to sustainability, and one possible solution is introduction into chemical thinking the principles of green chemistry. The challenge of green chemistry (GC) is to devise sustainable strategies that meet the demand for chemical products from ever-increasing population. Their greatest challenge is eventual elimination of environmentally harmful chemical products and replacing with compounds having low toxicity and rapid biodegradability while retaining their desired effect. To bring these developments from the laboratory into practical use chemists and chemical engineers must work together. GC is good term to bring together specialists in academia and industry. The aim of the Chair is concentrate all the thematic in the Institute of Chemistry under one strategic lead which in result will improve research quality on sustainability, basics of green technology and GC. The new Chair should create an environment where overlapping of these outstanding but so far separate research topics is maximized and synergetic effect is expected. It is important to have dense feedback with chemical and associated industries to remain on technology leadership and innovation. There are collected related elements of organic and bio-organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, material science, biotechnology and chemical technology where our institute is able to participate: catalysis (incl. asymmetric and organocatalysis) in organic synthesis; synthesis of nanomaterials for catalysis and new analytical methods, good collaboration with nano-toxicological research; biotechnology and biocatalysis for biomass treatment; benign methods in analytical chemistry. Better use of chemistry and biotechnology besides advancing in development of new materials will enable increased eco-efficiency of the industry and help increase the reputation of chemical industry.
