Overview

Green Organic Chemistry and its Interdisciplinary Applications / Edition 1

Green Organic Chemistry and Its Interdisciplinary Applications covers key developments in green chemistry and demonstrates to students that the developments were most often the result of innovative thinking. Using a set of selected experiments, all of which have been performed in the laboratory with undergraduate students, it demonstrates how to optimize and develop green experiments.

The book dedicates each chapter to individual applications, such as

  • Engineering
  • The chemical industry
  • The pharmaceutical industry
  • Analytical chemistry
  • Environmental chemistry

Each chapter also poses questions at the end, with the answers included.

By focusing on both the interdisciplinary applications of green chemistry and the innovative thinking that has produced new developments in the field, this book manages to present two key messages in a manner where they reinforce each other. It provides a single and concise reference for chemists, instructors, and students for learning about green organic chemistry and its great and ever-expanding number of applications.
