Green chemistry [electronic resource] : an introductory text / Mike Lancaster.

By: Lancaster, M. (Mike).
Material type: TextTextSeries: RSC paperbacks: Publisher: Cambridge : Royal Society of Chemistry, c2002Description: 1 online resource (xviii, 310 p.) : ill.ISBN: 9781847551009 (electronic bk.); 1847551009 (electronic bk.).Subject(s): Environmental chemistry -- Industrial applications | Qu�imica del medio ambiente -- Aplicaciones industriales | Milieuchemie | Qu�imica ambiental (aplica�c�oes industriais) | Chimie de l'environnement -- Applications industrielles | SCIENCE / Chemistry / Industrial & Technical | TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING / Chemical & BiochemicalGenre/Form: Electronic books.Additional physical formats: Print version:: Green chemistry.DDC classification: 660.20286 Online resources: EBSCOhost
Contents:
Principles and concepts of green chemistry -- Waste : production, problems, and prevention -- Measuring and controlling environmental performance -- Catalysis and green chemistry -- Organic solvents : environmentally benign solutions -- Renewable resources -- Emerging greener technologies and alternative energy sources -- Designing greener processes -- Industrial case studies -- The future's green : an integrated approach to a greener chemical industry.
Summary: The challenge for today's new chemistry graduates is to meet society's demand for new products that have increased benefits, but without detrimental effects on the environment. Green Chemistry: An Introductory Text outlines the basic concepts of the subject in simple language, looking at the role of catalysts and solvents, waste minimisation, feedstocks, green metrics and the design of safer, more efficient, processes. The inclusion of industrially relevant examples throughout demonstrates the importance of green chemistry in many industry sectors. Intended primarily for use by students and lecturers, this book will also appeal to industrial chemists, engineers, managers or anyone wishing to know more about green chemistry.
