Introduction to Green Chemistry techniques
The design of chemical products poses numerous challenges in chemistry such as non-ideal conversion, competing reactions, hazardous chemicals, raw material impurities, etc. This presentation provides an overview of Green Chemistry techniques to improve material efficiency, reduce pollution intensity, and also produce safer products and processes. It provides an overview of Green Chemistry & Green Engineering design principles as well as guidelines for Green Chemistry metrics, material selection and reaction conditions. Since Green Chemistry & Green Engineering are often applied together, common design principles are also shown.
