Edited by the inventor of the 12 principles of Green Chemistry, Paul Anastas, the complete 12-volumes of "Handbook of Green Chemistry" will provide a one-stop resource covering green catalysis, green solvents, green products and green processes.
"Handbook of Green Chemistry" covers highly topical areas in green chemistry such as feedstocks, green chemical engineering, green catalysis (homogeneous, heterogeneous and biocatalysis), separation techniques and solvents like supercritical fluids, ionic liquids and reactions in water. It covers the big environmental and product design issues faced by chemists such as how to make nanoscience greener, design safer, sustainable and less toxic chemicals and make chemical synthesis a greener and more sustainable process. In the final 3 volumes, "Handbook of Green Chemistry" will cover green products, the chemical engineering behind their processing and what makes a green product, vital in now this is key selling point for industry.
Set one of this essential collection of essays summarizes breakthroughs and highlights of the significant body of innovative, creative research in green chemistry and engineering that has been carried out during the past decade. It augurs well for the forthcoming sets of the series, and I am pleased to recommend it to chemists, chemical engineers, and anyone who wishes to understand the burgeoning world of green chemistry.

Paul T. Anastas joined Yale University as Professor and iserves as the Director of the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale. From 2004-2006, Paul Anastas has been the Director of the Green Chemistry Institute in Washington, D.C. Until June of 2004 he served as Assistant Director for Environment at e White House Office of Science and Technology Policy where his responsibilities included a wide range of environmental science issues including furthering international public-private cooperation in areas of Science for Sustainability such as Green Chemistry. In 1991, he established the industry-government-university partnership Green Chemistry Program, which was expanded to include basic research, and the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. He has published and edited several books in the field of Green Chemistry and developed the 12 principles of Green Chemistry.
