About this Book
The Handbook of Green Chemistry is a landmark publication in green chemistry. Edited by the inventor of the 12 principles of Green Chemistry, Paul Anastas, the Handbook of Green Chemistry is a one-stop resource covering green catalysis, green solvents, green processes and green products over 12 volumes of content.
The Handbook of Green Chemistry is published online in three parts: Volumes 1 to 6 covering green catalysis and green solvents in 2010, followed by volumes 7 to 9 in 2012 covering green processes, and 10 to 12 in 2015 covering green products.
The Handbook of Green Chemistry covers highly topical areas in green chemistry such as feedstocks, green chemical engineering, green catalysis (homogeneous, heterogeneous and biocatalysis), separation techniques and solvents like supercritical fluids, ionic liquids and reactions in water. It covers the big environmental and product design issues faced by chemists such as how to make nanoscience greener, design safer, sustainable and less toxic chemicals and make chemical synthesis a greener and more sustainable process. In the final 3 volumes, the Handbook of Green Chemistry covers green products, the chemical engineering behind their processing and what makes a green product vital for industry.
The contents of the following print volumes are now available online in the Handbook of Green Chemistry:
Volume 1 – Green Catalysis – Homogeneous Catalysis
Volume 2 – Green Catalysis – Heterogeneous Catalysis
Volume 3 – Green Catalysis – Biocatalysis
Volume 4 – Green Solvents – Supercritical Solvents
Volume 5 – Green Solvents – Reactions in Water
Volume 6 – Green Solvents – Ionic Liquids
Volume 7 – Green Processes – Green Synthesis
Volume 8 – Green Processes – Green Nanoscience
Volume 9 – Green Processes – Designing Safer Chemicals
