‘Heterogreeneous Chemistry’ adheres to the philosophy of green chemistry, outlined in the ‘12 Principles of Green Chemistry’, and is intimately linked to heterogeneous catalysis. The concept of ‘Heterogreeneous Chemistry’ is illustrated in catalytic applications relating to uses of renewable feedstocks, in particular biomass. Since solvents play an essential role in green catalysis, ‘heterogreeneous’ aspects of solvents systems are discussed.
