Solving problems: Reduction reactions are important chemical transformations, widely used on both the laboratory and industrial scale. Thus, the importance of these chemical transformations necessitates research towards alternative, greener solvent systems, to reduce any negative impact on the environment. This Minireview is focused on three alternatives for conducting reduction reactions: water, supercritical carbon dioxide, and ionic liquids.
