About this book

The synthesis of molecules with diverse uses in medicines, agrochemicals and biomolecules are dealt with in organic chemistry. The basic concern of the industries producing such chemicals is the type of reaction involved and the percentage of yield etc, so that synthesis becomes cost-effective whilst minimising environmental pollution. All these considerations form the basis of green chemistry. This book describes the methodologies/technologies to carry out a green synthesis. The main features discussed are:


Designing a green synthesis;
Basic principles of green chemistry;
Prevention of environmental pollution;
Microwave induced and ultrasound assisted green synthesis;
Organic synthesis in aqueous phase and solid phase;
Use of green reagents, green catalysts and green solvents.
