Urbanization, industrialization, and unethical agricultural practices have considerably negative effects on the environment,
flora, fauna, and the health and safety of humanity. Over the last decade, green chemistry research has focused on discovering
and utilizing safer, more environmentally friendly processes to synthesize products like organic compounds, inorganic compounds,
medicines, proteins, enzymes, and food supplements. These green processes exist in other interdisciplinary fields of science
and technology, like chemistry, physics, biology, and biotechnology, Still the majority of processes in these fields use and
generate toxic raw materials, resulting in techniques and byproducts which damage the environment. Green chemistry principles,
alternatively, consider preventing waste generation altogether, the atom economy, using less toxic raw materials and solvents,
and opting for reducing environmentally damaging byproducts through energy efficiency.
Green chemistry is, therefore,
the most important field relating to the sustainable development of resources without harmfully impacting the environment.
This book provides in-depth research on the use of green chemistry principles for a number of applications.
