Green Chemistry is increasingly becoming the norm in modern chemistry, and its philosophy of reducing the use and generation of hazardous substances is a great asset in the drive towards sustainability in the 21st Century. This collection of books examines various applications of green chemistry, including food manufacturing, transportation fuels and analytical chemistry. Drawn from the Green Chemistry book Series published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the collection presents a comprehensive source of informed opinion and cutting-edge research.
This set contains the following volumes:
