This new book highlights the potential and scope of green chemistry for clean and sustainable development. Covering the basics, the book introduces readers to the need and many applications. It also gives benefits of environmentally friendly chemical practices and their use in industry.
“The importance of becoming a ‘green society’ is now well established within and outside the scientific community. . . . This book is suited to advanced chemistry majors and practitioners; it has numerous detailed illustrations of organic transformations and emphasizes specific green processes and techniques, and ways specific named reactions can be more ecofriendly. The topics range from well-established industrial methods (e.g., sonochemistry and microwave-assisted chemistry) but not yet commonly employed. Overall, this interesting read highlights the rapid progress of green chemistry.”
—P. G. Heiden, Michigan Technological University; in CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, June 2014
