About the book

Green Chemistry discusses the engineering concept of pollution prevention and zero waste both at laboratory and industrial scale. It encourages the use of economical and eco-friendly benign techniques which not only improves the yield but also brings down the cost of disposal of waste at the end of a chemical process

Key Features

  • Compilation of chemical, environmental, step change technologies Solvent alternatives, natural products Applicability to research as well as industry
