Book Description

Covering a wide range of reactions, including solid state, photochemical, enzymatic, and sonication, this book explains the need for and the principles of green chemistry, including applications relevant to researchers and students. The author discusses the planning and detailed preparations that are required in order to convert to green laboratory techniques. The first part of this new second edition describes 58 reactions under normal and benign reactions. The second part provides experimental details for a number of green preparations. The first edition of the text won the American Library Association’s award for Outstanding Academic Title in their Choice magazine.
