IIT- Bombay Young Chemist Travel Award

Environment: Be it, Live it and Love it.

Environment is not a home only to humans but to several other species on the planet including green life. It is the realm of life. But pollution has structured itself into numerous extensions which are causing threat to life by affecting the environment. One of the most dangerous pollutant is plastic . The alarming levels of plastic pollution is causing death of various species on land, water and air, as the chemical structure of most plastics renders them resistant to many natural processes of degradation, hence they are slow to degrade and highly hazardous. Unfortunately, none other than humans are contributing to this lethal trap of death which has widened over a period of time. Now humans are also at risk and it has become important to take effective measures to control plastic pollution at this level before it engulfs the entire planet and replaces life on earth.
Adulteration : From natural to man made.

Desire to more is the root cause of adulteration. Food adulteration is an emerging issue in today s world and humans are falling prey to it. The nutrition is compromised in the process by either lowering the quality of food by the addition of inferior quality material or by extraction of valuable ingredient. It not only includes the intentional addition or substitution of the substances but biological and chemical contamination during the period of growth, storage, processing, transport and distribution of the food products, is also responsible for the degradation of the quality of food products.
