A special issue on Sustainable Chemistry covering the medicinal chemistry, green synthesis, biomass derived chemicals, biopolymer for health, nanotechnology, chemical sensors, photochemical reactions, green fuels, natural products, environmental chemistry and allied chemical sciences advances towards sustainable future.
The Department of Chemistry, Deshabndhu College, University of Delhi, India, in association with Augusta University, USA; Indian Society of Chemists & Biologists (ISCB) and the Indian Association of Solid-State Chemists and Allied Scientists (ISCAS) is organising a three-day International Conference on “Integrative Chemical Science for Health and Environment” on 6-8 October 2023. The conference aims to promote scientific network, research and collaboration among experts from all over the world as well as industry personnel to showcase their products. This event enables the environmentalist, health experts, academicians, researchers, and students to present latest developments, trends, and solutions for addressing the issues of good health and a clean environment.
Rising greenhouse gas emissions, as well as an increased carbon footprint as a result of human-caused activities including land usage, deforestation, biomass burning, and agricultural operations, are creating catastrophic climate change. For decades, chemists and biochemists have worked together to address the critical issue of global warming. To reduce the use of fossil fuels and improve air and land pollution, researchers must develop new alternative chemist technologies that are cost-effective, safe, cleaner, and replenishable, such as renewable energy sources, biofuels, and functionally modified chemicals/nanomaterials. Nanotechnology is one of the most promising technologies for fostering sustainable development by addressing issues such as human health, water treatment, climate change, soil remediation, and environmental problems.
This issue will cover recent trends in chemical science and nanobiotechnology that aid in the diagnosis of infectious diseases through the use of new drugs and delivery vehicles, high-resolution biosensors/nanodevices for rapid diagnosis, and artificial intelligence to treat people living in rural areas who are infected with viral diseases such as COVID-19. This issue will also take a close look at recent technological developments that solve various challenges connected to the isolation and characterization of natural products to be used as drug leads for tackling important topics such as antibiotic resistance.

Infertility affects 15% of couples worldwide and is a major health issue. One of the primary reasons for infertility is oxidative stress (OS), which is defined as an imbalance in the amounts of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidants. In case of male reproduction, physiological functions of sperm, especially capacitation, hyperactivation, and acrosomal reaction, require a modest level of ROS. However, excessive ROS generation can inactivate vital enzymes and oxidize proteins in spermatozoa, lipid peroxidation or DNA damage, leading to infertility. Major sources of ROS include immature spermatozoa, inflammatory agents, genetic mutations, and altered sex hormone levels. In case of female reproduction, existing literature suggest that ROS affect oocyte development, maturation, follicular atresia, corpus luteum function, and luteolysis. Mechanisms of OS-mediated female reproductive tract disorders resemble those of male infertility to a substantial extent. Since OS is caused by deficiency in antioxidants, adopting a healthier lifestyle and taking antioxidant supplements are used as conventional treatment for OS-mediated infertility. This special issues aims to highlight the physiological ROS generation, genetic and epigenetic influences on OS and infertility; and also to present an updated in-depth insight on the mechanism involved in OS-induced infertility, including lipid peroxidation, DNA damage, hormone profile imbalance, inflammation, etc. Finally, the special issue intends to discuss the beneficial impacts and limitations of using antioxidants in treating male and female infertility.
Themes: Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: ● Oxidative stress in male and female infertility ● Systemic diseases and reproduction: oxidative stress as the key player ● Endocrine disruption, oxidative stress and reproduction ● Infection, inflammation and oxidative stress in reproductive pathophysiology ● Antioxidants in the mitigation of oxidative stress induced reproductive disorders

The catalysts chemistry has a new arena to explore, the Organocatalysis which was recognized with the award of Noble Prize 2021 in Chemistry to Prof. Benzamin List and Prof. David MacMilan. The noble laureates in 2000, independent of each other, has brought the life to the chemistry of new type of catalysis known as asymmetric organocatalysis (this is new addition to catalysts science that mainly had metal catalysts and enzymes in the category). The organocatalysis make use of ‘small organic molecules’ to synthesize diversity of organic molecules.
A number of different organic molecules has been explored as catalysts for synthesis of different type of organic molecules/compounds. This special issue is meant to cover recent advances in field of catalysis – organocatalysis.

The global population health status indicates the rapid increase in the incidence of cancer, the leading ailment responsible for high mortality rates. A surge in cancer cases has been observed due to various reasons such as lifestyle related behaviors, carcinogenic exposures, occupational hazards and genetic epidemiology. This makes cancer literacy and knowledge an important step against cancer. Taking the various issues into consideration, we need to define a roadmap towards effective programs for comprehensive cancer control and awareness. Cancer awareness makes early detection of cancer that further helps in the management and treatment. The awareness also paves a path towards prevention of cancer by living a healthy lifestyle. The aim of the conference is to understand the latest successful interventions in prevention, diagnosis, timely-accessed treatment, care and control of cancer. Now, the time is to unite and stand against the global cancer burden and to move towards the advancement of global cancer control that leaves no one behind.
