GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice

Title:
Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice

Abstract:
Full Citation: Anastas, P. T., and J. C. Warner, Eds.. Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice. Oxford University Press: Oxford, UK, 1998.

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Summary: From the American Chemical Society web site: “This book provides the first introductory treatment of the design, development, and evaluation processes central to Green Chemistry. A comprehensive textbook, it takes a broad view of the subject and integrates a wide variety of approaches. Topics include alternative feedstocks, environmentally benign syntheses, the design of safer chemical products, new reaction conditions, alternative solvents and catalyst development, and the use of biosynthesis and biomimetic principles. It introduces new evaluation processes that encompass the complete health and environmental impact of a synthesis, from the choice of starting materials to the final product. Throughout, the text provides specific examples, which compare the new methods with classical ones.” 152 pages.
