About this book

Green Technologies for the Environment brings together experts in the field of biotechnology, chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental engineering and toxicology from both academia and industry, to discuss green processes for the environment. The topics included finding replacements for crude oil to meet both our energy needs as well as the supply of chemicals for the production of essential products, advances in chemical processing, waste valorization, alternative solvents, and developments in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis as well as enzyme-based processes for chemical transformations.

Advances in green chemistry concepts will further enhance the field through the design of new chemicals and solvents. In addition, obtaining a better understanding of the mechanistic pathways involved in various reactions is essential toward advances in the field. The goal of the work described in each of the chapters is to address the need for best practices for chemical processes and for the production of chemicals, while promoting sustainability.

Biography

Sherine O. Obare is a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and also the Associate Chair and Graduate Director at the Department of Chemistry at Western Michigan University. She received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry at West Virginia State University, and she received her PhD at the University of South Carolina with Professor Catherine J. Murphy. She completed a two-year Dreyfus postdoctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins University with Professor Gerald. J. Meyer.

Professor Rafael Luque received a PhD in Chemistry from the Universidad de Cordoba, Spain in 2005. His research program and expertise focus on (nano)materials science, heterogeneous (nano)catalysis, microwave and flow chemistry, biofuels, and green chemical methods in synthetic organic chemistry. He has published over 220 research articles, filed 3 patent applications, and edited seven books; he has also written several book chapters. He has given Invited, Keynote, and Plenary lectures, along with keynote addresses, at several international conferences. Professor Luque is also heavily involved in chemical education and promoting science in developing countries.
