Lecture Series: Scientific Work

Free Online Live Event

Scientific work is for many at first a book with seven seals, but is of course absolutely indispensable in studies. But what does it actually mean to work scientifically? And how does it work?

With our free live online lecture series on scientific work, we would like to give you an understanding of how work is done in a university, scientific context. Framework conditions such as objectivity, objectivity, good sources, an overview of the research situation and correct citation play an essential role here.

Topic, content and lecturer

Lecture 4: 16.01.2023

(in English)

Ann-Kathrin Amsel: "Benign by Design: Approaches and methods for designing environmental mineralising chemicals"

Content: The globally increasing chemicalization comes along with increasing pollution of the environment with toxic and persistent chemicals. Therefore, there is the need that chemicals and pharmaceuticals, which can enter the environment, should be designed to be mineralisable in the environment (Benign by Design, BbD) to prevent environmental pollution. Some approaches and methods used in the benign design of chemicals will be presented, e.g. re-design, de novo design, quantitative structure-activity relationship models.

Personal details: Ann-Kathrin Amsel studied Environmental Sciences (B.Sc.) and Sustainability Science (M.Sc.) at Leuphana University Lüneburg. During her studies she specialized in environmental and sustainable chemistry. At the ISC3 Research & Education Hub hosted by Leuphana University she investigates the potential of quantitative structure–activity relationship models (QSAR) for the implementation of sustainable chemistry. Together with her colleagues, she coordinates the Professional Masters programme M.Sc. Sustainable Chemistry.
