Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Anastas from the US Environmental Protection Agency and Warner (chemistry, U. of Massachusetts-Boston) introduce the design, development, and evaluation processes of a currently active area of research that concentrates on the handling and use of chemicals to ensure efficiency but also human and environmental compatibility. They take a wide view and integrate such topics as alternative foodstocks, environmentally benign synthetic methodologies, designing safer chemical products, new reaction conditions, alternative solvents and catalyst development, and the use of biosynthesis and biomimetic principles. They also describe a new evaluation process that encompasses the health and environmental impact of a synthetic pathway from the choice to starting materials to the target molecule. They write for graduate and professional chemists, and include exercises for classroom or individual study. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
