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 green chemical approach is holistic in nature and it encompasses almost all branches of chemical sciences, like synthesis, catalysis, bioorganic, nanochemistry, material science, drug discovery, pharmaceuticals, waste treatment etc. The book addresses such topics as ecologically safe products, catalysts and solvents, conditions needed to produce such products, types of chemical processes that are conducive to green chemistry, and much more.

Reviews
“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.”
