Green chemistry is a vital subject playing a key role in environmental sustainability. Despite its importance, very less has been explored in the past years. This book is a comprehensive compilation of the methods, techniques and strategies used in green chemistry. The book highlights some critical aspects of green chemistry related to agriculture and food production. It has been put together for undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students. Each chapter has been cited with new and updated research discoveries to help the postgraduate, and doctorate students and researchers. I hope the presented book will be an important tool for students and researchers.

She holds a Ph.D. in Food Engineering Lab at Agricultural University of Athens, focused on Physical Properties of Foods. She has worked as a Research Engineer at the Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Reading. Currently, she works as a Chemical Engineer at the Oil and Gas Industry.
Dr. Nilofar Asim obtained her BSc in Applied Chemistry (1995) and MSc in Inorganic Chemistry (1999) from Tehran University, and her Ph.D. in Materials Science (2008) from the National University of Malaysia. She is presently working as an Associate professor at the Solar Energy Research Institute, a center of excellence for the research and development of solar energy technology, National University of Malaysia (UKM). She has been involved in the field of materials science for more than 24 years. Her main research interests fall into the fields of circular economy, especially in the areas of recycling and sustainable manufacturing including the development of new products, new fabrication routes, and enhancement of existing products. She is experienced in the valorisation of different agricultural and industrial waste materials for fabrication of value-added materials with various applications such as adsorbents for decontamination and desiccant materials, the synthesis of various metal oxides and metal oxide nanocomposites to be utilized in solar cells, renewable system technologies, catalysts, and depollution as well as Design & synthesis of functional geopolymers for cooling systems as well as depollution. As a material scientist, her focus expands to set on the synthesis of various types of functional, advanced, and environmentally sustainable materials from varieties of resources for different applications. Considering various environmental issues her focus was on applying the green chemistry concept to overcome these issues as much as possible by utilizing various agricultural and industrial wastes as resource materials. She has published more than 120 research papers in journals, conferences, and book chapters.
