About this book

Green Chemistry for a Sustainable Future presents the most important concepts and tools of green chemistry that can be used to make future products, processes, and technologies sustainable. The context of green chemistry within scientific discovery and global impact is addressed in order to provide understanding and appreciation of the student to relevant history and background from which green chemistry developed.

The principles and concepts of green chemistry are then presented utilizing a framework that has been successfully implemented by the authors in classes, seminars, symposia and workshops in countries around the world. Following the thorough presentation of the theoretical basis of green chemistry, there is a series of chapters covering the application of the concepts to various topical areas including catalysis, synthesis, and energy generation. The topical chapters include extensive examples of green chemistry design, discovery, and implementation.
