Overview

The book explains the importance of chemistry in solving environmental issues by highlighting the role green chemistry plays in making the environment clean and green by covering a wide array of topics ranging from sustainable development, microwave chemical reaction, renewable feedstocks, microbial bioremediation, and other topics that, when implemented, will advance environmental improvement.

Green Chemistry for Environmental Remediation provides insight on how educators from around the world have incorporated green chemistry into their classrooms and how the principles of green chemistry can be integrated into the curriculum.

The volume presents high-quality research papers as well as in-depth review articles from eminent professors, scientists, chemists, and engineers both from educational institutions and from industry. It introduces a new emerging green face of multidimensional environmental chemistry. Each chapter brings forward the latest literature and research being done in the related area.

The 23 chapters are divided into 4 sections:

  1. Green chemistry and societal sustainability including teaching and education of green chemistry

  2. Green lab technologies and alternative solutions to conventional laboratory techniques

  3. Green bio-energy sources as green technology frontiers

  4. Green applications and solutions for remediation

Green Chemistry for Environmental Remediation is an important resource for academic researchers, students, faculty, industrial chemists, chemical engineers, environmentalists, and anyone interested in environmental policy safeguarding the environment. Relevant industries include those in clean technology, renewable energy, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and chemicals. Another goal of the book is to promote and generate awareness about the relationship of green chemistry with the environment amongst the younger generation who might wish to pursue a career in green chemistry.
