Description

Green chemistry has progressed from being a driver for change in the chemical and allied industries to being a critical part of chemical education at all levels. The future chemist must be able to practice their trade in the light of increasing concerns about waste and resources, the safety of chemicals in consumer products, and increasingly restrictive legislation. While there are green chemistry educational resources available including lectures and experiments as well as numerous books on green chemistry and major green chemical technologies, there is no “green equivalent” of a standard organic chemistry textbook
Systematically covering a variety of well-known reactions that commonly feature in standard organic textbooks this book supplements and supports the standard organic chemistry texts. It highlights the main sustainability issues of classical and contemporary organic transformations and critically evaluates them within a metric of established Green Chemistry Principles noting where additional efforts are needed to improve their environmental footprint. Written by a team of expert authors with a multinational advisory board, this book is a fantastic resource for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students worldwide.

James H Clark:
James H Clark is Professor of Chemistry at the University of York, and is Founding Director of the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence and the Bio-renewables Development Centre. He started the award-winning company Starbons Ltd and he is now involved in commercialisation of novel bio-based solvents and new green technologies. He was founding scientific editor of the world-leading journal Green Chemistry. His research has led to numerous awards including Honorary Doctorates from universities in Belgium, Germany and Sweden. He has Visiting Professorships in South Africa and China, and was recently appointed as Chair-Professor at Fudan University. He has published over 500 articles (h index over 72) and written or edited over 20 books and is Editor-in-chief of the RSC Green Chemistry book series. He has received numerous awards and distinctions including the 2018 Green Chemistry prize.|||James Clark holds Chairs at the University of York and Fudan University. He has been at the forefront of green chemistry research and education for over 20 years and has won numerous awards and prizes. He was the founding scientific editor of the journal Green Chemistry and editor-in-chief of the RSC Green Chemistry Book series.
Christian Stevens is senior full professor at Ghent University. His research focusses on the reduction of the footprint of chemical processes by developing new chemical methodology, by using continuous flow chemistry and by incorporation of renewable building blocks in chemical processes. He is also organizer of the International Conference on Renewable Resources and Biorefineries.
Anwar Jardine is Associate Professor at the University of Cape Town. He worked in the Pharmaceutical and Personal Care industries in the US. After 8 years in industry he returned to academia where he established research in carbohydrate chemistry as applied to the design of antimicrobials and anticancer drugs. He is passionate about adding value to polysaccharide-based biomass waste in the context of Green Chemistry.
Dr Avtar S Matharu is Senior Lecturer and Deputy Director of the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence, University of York. His research focusses on renewable resources and materials, in particular unavoidable food supply chain wastes. He developed the Greener Reactions and Sustainable Processes (GRASP) concept to encourage academia and industries to change from traditional methodologies to those more sustainable.|||James Clark holds Chairs at the University of York and Fudan University.
