Green chemistry is chemistry for the environment. It is really a philosophy and way of thinking that can help chemistry in research and production to develop more eco-friendly solutions. Green chemistry is considered an essential piece of a comprehensive program to protect human health and the environment. In its essence, green chemistry is a science-based non-regulatory and economically driven approach to achieving the goals of environmental protection and sustainable development. Combining the technological progress with environmental safety is one of the key challenges of the millennium. In this context, this book describes the environmentally benign approaches for the industries as well as chemical laboratories. In order to provide an insight into step change technologies, this book was edited by green organic chemists.
