GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Solvents for Chemistry: Perspectives and Practice

Title:
Green Solvents for Chemistry: Perspectives and Practice

Abstract:
Full Citation: Nelson, William M. Green Solvents for Chemistry: Perspectives and Practice. Oxford University Press: New York, NY, 2003.

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Summary: The aim of this book is to introduce the use of green solvents throughout chemistry and to provide a comprehensive reference for solvents currently applicable in green chemistry. The first section covers solvents in chemical perspective, and the second section is a guide to green solvents. Overall, this volume defines characteristics of green solvents and their current usage, and explores their importance ecologically and economically. It includes a full range of commercial, industrial, and academic green solvents, and discusses solvents in specific commercial and non-commercial practices. Green Solvents for Chemistry differs from other works on solvents in that only solvents for green chemistry are included along with their chemical properties and toxicological issues.
