Overview


This topical volume provides an in-depth profile of the science in this cutting edge area of investigation. Rather than focusing on current techniques, it emphasizes likely future developments in environmentally benign chemical synthesis. Topics include carbon dioxides as alternative solvents, biosynthesis for improved industrial processes and products, alkynes and atom economical reactions, supercritical CO[2 assisted aerosolization for thin film deposition, fine powder generation and drug delivery, the design of green oxidants, indium-promoted carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions in water, and synthesis of pharmaceutical building blocks. With its up-to-date accounts of a wide range of topics, this book will be an important resource for academic researchers, industrial chemists, and anyone interested in environmental policy.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Green chemistry, the process of designing chemical products and processes so that hazardous substances are not used or generated, is revolutionizing science and industry and its impact on the environment. This research provides an in-depth profile of the latest research in the area of environmentally benign chemical synthesis, discussing new frontiers in research on alternative feedstocks and reagents, catalysis, biocatalysis and bioprocessing, alternative solvents, uses of carbon dioxide, and alternative synthesis and processing. Of interest to industrial scientists, legislators, and academic researchers. The authors are affiliated with the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics, and the US Environmental Protection Agency.
