Mukesh Doble, Anil Kumar Kruthiventi, in Green Chemistry and Engineering, Green Solvents. Green solvents are environmentally friendly solvents, or biosolvents, which are derived from the processing of agricultural crops. The use of petrochemical solvents is the key to the majority of chemical processes but not without severe implications on the environment. The Handbook of Green Chemistry is a landmark publication in green chemistry. Edited by one of the inventors of the 12 principles of Green Chemistry, Paul Anastas, the Handbook of Green Chemistry is a one-stop resource covering green catalysis, green solvents and green processes.. The Handbook of Green Chemistry covers highly topical areas in green chemistry such as . Green Solvents Volume I and II is an invaluable guide to scientists, R&D industrial specialists, researchers, upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, Ph.D. scholars, college and university professors working in the field of chemistry and biochemistry. The Application of Green Solvents in Separation Processes features a logical progression of a wide range of topics and methods, beginning with an overview of green solvents, covering everything from water and organic solvents, to ionic liquids, switchable solvents, eutectic mixtures, supercritical fluids, gas-expanded solvents, and more.

Green chemistry is getting extended in many researches and industry areas. Not only pharmaceutical companies but also the other chemical industries started to take a step for green chemistry due to its advantages such as decreasing of waste and cost. With this respect, we have already witnessed that pharmaceutical companies searched out for green protocol when Cited by: 1. If the adoption of greener solvents over the next years will reduce environmental damage from human activities, then the adoption of what class of solvents will be responsible for the greatest reduction in environmental damage? Green Chemistry in solvents. Green chemistry, also called sustainable chemistry, is an area of chemistry and chemical engineering focused on the designing of products and processes that minimize or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances. While environmental chemistry focuses on the effects of polluting chemicals on nature, green chemistry focuses on the environmental impact .   Solvents have received much attention under the remit of green chemistry [1–5].This can be ascribed to the large volume of solvent typically used in a reaction (especially at the purification stage) or in a formulation [6, 7].Despite this, the solvent is not directly responsible for the composition of a reaction product, nor is it the active component of a by:

Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries – The greenest solvents are the ones that aren’t used, but choosing innocuous ones when needed is a key component of green chemistry Inherently Safer Chemistry for Accident Prevention – Using safer solvents and preventing hazardous waste minimizes the potential for chemical accidents, including releases, explosions, and fires. Sustainable solvents are a topic of growing interest in both the research community and the chemical industry due to a growing awareness of the impact of solvents on pollution, energy usage, and contributions to air quality and climate change. Solvent losses represent a major portion of organic pollution, and solvent removal represents a large proportion of process Cited by: Therefore, in order to make chemistry more sustainable in these fields, a knowledge of alternative, greener solvents is important. This book, which is part of a green chemistry series, uses examples that tie in with the 12 principles of green chemistry e.g. atom efficient reactions in benign solvents and processing of renewable chemicals Cited by: Industrial Applications of Green Solvents – Volume I Eds.
