Green Chemistry

Information resources on green and sustainable chemistry.

Green chemistry - or: sustainable chemistry - is the application of environmentally friendly chemicals and processes to protect the environment from hazardous substances.

At the same time, the compounds are again fully returned to the material cycle. And there are chemical processes used with low energy expenditure.

The principles of green chemistry should be in our time for self-understanding and to be present at any time during the planning of new processes, systems and manufacturing processes.

The following internet resources for sustainable chemistry are listed thematically.

Handbook of Green Chemistry

Nicht nur in den westlichen Industrieländern ist Umweltschutz heute ein selbstverständlicher Bestandteil der gesellschaftlichen Existenz. Über die Entwicklung der Grünen Chemie und Technik informiert das 12-bändige "Handbook of Green Chemistry", zu dem dieser vorliegende Band über Grüne Homogene Katalyse gehört.

Ausführlich wie nie zuvor behandelt er alle Aspekte der umweltverträglichen und nachhaltigen homogenen Katalyse, wie zum Beispiel Atomökonomie, Oxidationen mit Wasserstoffperoxid, industrielle Prozesse und vieles weitere mehr.
