Green Chemistry in Practice: Greener Material and Chemical Innovation Through Collaboration collects a unique set of case studies based on researchers’ experiences in developing practical, green chemistry-driven solutions to industry problems as part of the Greener Solutions Program at the Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry.
Beginning with an introduction to green chemistry, the book goes on to provide an overview of the interdisciplinary approach taken by the Center, which aims to bring about a generational transformation toward the design and use of inherently safer chemicals and materials through research, teaching and outreach. This is followed by four detailed case studies revealing each step of the process involved in assessing and designing greener solutions to real-world problems in the fields of preservatives, textiles, additive manufacturing, and green energy.
Drawing together the hands-on, practical experience of an interdisciplinary team from across academia and industry, Practice in Green Chemistry provides a unique insight into the practicalities of applying green chemistry principles in support of a global push toward a more sustainable world. Green Chemistry in Practice: Greener Material and Chemical Innovation Through Collaboration is also a valuable resource for both academia and industry students and researchers.
