Paul T. Anastas joined Yale University as Professor and serves as the Director of the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering there. From 2004–2006, Paul was the Director of the Green Chemistry Institute in Washington, D.C. Until June 2004 he served as Assistant Director for Environment at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy where his responsibilities included a wide range of environmental science issues including furthering international public-private cooperation in areas of Science for Sustainability such as Green Chemistry. In 1991, he established the industry-government-university partnership Green Chemistry Program, which was expanded to include basic research, and the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. He has published and edited several books in the field of Green Chemistry and developed the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry.

Chao-Jun Li (FRSC, UK) received his PhD at McGill University (1992) and was an NSERC Postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University (1992–1994). He was an Assistant Professor (1994), Associate Professor (1998) and Full Professor (2000–2003) at Tulane University, where he received a NSF CAREER Award (1998) in organic synthesis and the 2001 US Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award (Academic). In 2003, he became a Canada Research Chair (Tier I) in Organic/Green Chemistry and a Professor of Chemistry at McGill University in Canada. He serves as the Co-Chair of the Canadian Green Chemistry and Engineering Network, the Director of CFI Infrastructure for Green Chemistry and Green Chemicals, and Co-Director the FQRNT Center for Green Chemistry and Catalysis (Quebec). He is the current Associate Editor for Americas for the journal of Green Chemistry (published by the Royal Society of Chemistry). He has been widely recognized as the leader in Green Chemistry for Organic Synthesis in developing innovative and fundamentally new organic reactions that defy conventional reactivities and have high synthetic efficiency.
