The Dreyfus Foundation sponsored a symposium on Environmental Chemistry, the topic of the 2021 Dreyfus Prize, at the spring national meeting of the American Chemical Society on Tuesday, March 22, 2022.

The distinguished speakers were Paul Anastas (Yale), James G. Anderson (Harvard, recipient of the 2021 Dreyfus Prize), Barbara Finlayson-Pitts (University of California, Irvine), Vicki Grassian (University of California, San Diego), Frank Keutsch (Harvard), Francois Morel (Princeton), Dustin Schroeder (Stanford), and John Seinfeld (California Institute of Technology).

All these talks are now available online via the Foundation’s YouTube page.
