Green Chemistry is one of the most exciting and innovative approaches to come along in the chemical enterprise and environmental protection areas in a generation. Basically Green Chemistry is the design of chemical processes and products that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances. It is a global trend that involves research on new feedstocks, environmentally benign solvents, catalysis, synthetic methodologies, and greener products. This volume is a collection of the cutting-edge research being conducted in this area from scientists around the world, brought together for the first time in Green Chemistry: Challenging Perspectives. It provides an overview of the major issues facing chemists engaged in creating more environmentally responsible technology and processes, and will be of interest to scientists and decision-makers in industry, academia, and government.

Editorial Reviews

This volume represents a 1997 namesake conference in Venice, that was the first European forum for chemists from different fields dealing with environmentally responsible chemical synthesis and processing to collaborate on the green approach in industrial practice. Thirteen papers address such topics as the design and development of cleaner alternative synthetic catalysts, bio-catalysts, and processes (e.g., photochemistry); new optimized reaction conditions and control systems; less toxic solvents, and solvent-free reactions; and new chemicals with novel structures that reduce or eliminate toxicity and hazard while maintaining efficacy. Tundo is in environmental sciences at the U. of Ca' Foscari in Venice. Anastas is with the Industrial Chemistry branch of the US Environmental Protection Agency. Annotation c.
