Chris Slootweg started his independent scientific career in 2006 at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2014, and moved to the University of Amsterdam in 2016. The mission of his laboratory is to educate students at the intersection of fundamental physical organic chemistry, main-group chemistry, and circular chemistry. Chris finds it most exciting to combine state-of-the-art computational chemistry with synthetic chemistry to facilitate the discovery of new concepts, processes and unique species, in particular ones that can have scientific and societal impact. The ultimate aim of his research is to combine molecular design and synthesis with the environmental fate and impact of current products targeting safe by design (no persistent, bio-accumulative, and toxic compounds) and design for re-use, recovery and recycling (circular chemistry). Chris is cofounder and scientific advisor of SusPhos BV, a pioneering company focused on upcycling of phosphate rich waste streams to generate high-quality alternatives to replace current fossil-sourced products.

His motivation is to contribute to solving societal and environmental challenges, like those articulated in the UN Sustainable Development Goals to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
