About this book

A world where the emphasis has shifted to being as green and environmentally friendly as possible leads to the requirement of this important 3-book set of "The Handbook of Green Chemistry" edited by the father and pioneer of Green Chemistry, Professor Paul Anastas.

This series summarises the significant body of work that has accumulated over the past decade that details the breakthroughs, innovation and creativity within Green Chemistry and Engineering.

Set II comprises of 3 books, with each volume focussing on a different area and edited by leading scientists in the field:

- Supercritical Solvents - Editors: W. Leitner and P. G. Jessop
- Ionic Liquids - Editors: P. Wasserscheid and A. Stark
- Reactions in Water - Editor: C.-J. Li

An essential collection for anyone wishing to gain an understanding of the world of green chemistry and for a variety of chemists, environmental agencies and chemical engineers.

"The Handbook of Green Chemistry" comprises of 12 volumes in total, split into subject-specific sets. The four sets are available individually.

Part I: Green Catalysis
Part II: Green Solvents
Part III: Green Processes
Part IV: Green Products

Overall, these 3 volumes bring readers up-to-date with the current thinking and new applications of green solvents and are recommended reading for scientists and engineers involved in green issues.
- Organic Process Research & Development Journal, 2011

"Set II of this essential collection of essays reviews the significant advances in innovative, creative research in green chemistry and engineering that has been carried out during the last decade. It augurs well for the future volumes in the series, and I recommend it to chemists, chemical engineers and anyone interested in understanding the accelerating field of green chemistry."
