Green Analytical Chemistry

Author: Miguel de la Guardia
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 0444537104
Release Date: 2010-10-27
Genre: Science

This book provides basic coverage of the fundamentals and principles of green chemistry as it applies to chemical analysis. The main goal of Green Analytical Chemistry is to avoid or reduce the undesirable environmental side effects of chemical analysis, while preserving the classic analytical parameters of accuracy, sensitivity, selectivity, and precision. The authors review the main strategies for greening analytical methods, concentrating on minimizing sample preparation and handling, reducing solvent and reagent consumption, reducing energy consumption, minimizing of waste, operator safety and the economic savings that this approach offers. Suggestions are made to educators and editors to standardize terminology in order to facilitate the identification of analytical studies on green alternatives in the literature because there is not a wide and generalized use of a common term that can group efforts to prevent waste, avoid the use of potentially toxic reagents or solvents and those involving the decontamination of wastes. provides environmentally-friendly alternatives to established analytical practice focuses on the cost-saving opportunities offered emphasis on laboratory personnel safety

Challenges in Green Analytical Chemistry

Author: Miguel da la Guardia
Publisher: Royal Society of Chemistry
ISBN: 9781849731324
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Science

Concerns about environmental pollution, global climate change and hazards to human health have increased dramatically. This has lead to a call for change in chemical processes including those that are part of chemical analysis. The development of analytical chemistry continues and every new discovery in chemistry, physics, molecular biology, and materials science brings new opportunities and challenges. Yet, contemporary analytical chemistry does not consume resources optimally. Indeed, the usage of toxic chemical compounds is at the highest rate ever. All this makes the emerging field of green chemistry a "hot topic" in industrial, governmental laboratories as well as in academia. This book starts by introducing the twelve principles of green chemistry. It then goes on to discuss how the principles of green chemistry can be used to assess the 'greenness' of analytical methodologies. The 'green profile' proposed by the ACS Green Chemistry Institute is also presented. A chapter on "Greening" sample preparation describes approaches to minimizing toxic solvent use, using non-toxic alternatives, and saving energy. The chapter on instrumental methods describes existing analytical approaches that are inherently green and making non-green methods greener. The final chapter on signal acquisition describes how quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) ideas could reduce experimental work thus making analysis greener. The book concludes with a discussion of how green chemistry is both possible and necessary. Green Analytical Chemistry is aimed at managers of analytical laboratories but will also interest teachers of analytical chemistry and green public policy makers.

New Trends in Green Chemistry

Author: V.K. Ahluwalia
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781402031755
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Science

Organic chemistry has played a vital role in the development of diverse molecules which are used in medicines, agrochemicals and polymers. Most ofthe chemicals are produced on an industrial scale. The industrial houses adopt a synthesis for a particular molecule which should be cost-effective. No attention is paid to avoid the release of harmful chemicals in the atmosphere, land and sea. During the past decade special emphasis has been made towards green synthesis which circumvents the above problems. Prof. V. K. Ahluwalia and Dr. M. Kidwai have made a sincere effort in this direction. This book discusses the basic principles of green chemistry incorporating the use of green reagents, green catalysts, phase transfer catalysis, green synthesis using microwaves, ultrasound and biocatalysis in detail. Special emphasis is given to liquid phase reactions and organic synthesis in the solid phase. I must congratulate both the authors for their pioneering efforts to write this book. Careful selection of various topics in the book will serve the rightful purpose for the chemistry community and the industrial houses at all levels. PROF. JAVED IQBAL, PhD, FNA Distinguished Research Scientist & Head Discovery Research Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd.

Genre: Science

A guide to designing safer polymers based on the principles ofgreen chemistry and the EPA's Polymer Exemption Rule Green chemistry, the design of chemical products and processes thatreduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances,is a powerful tool in designing safer polymers. By adhering to theprinciples of green chemistry, manufacturers can produce polymersthat are better for the environment, and can do so in aneconomically sound manner. The Polymer Exemption Rule delineates types of polymers that areexpected to be of reduced risk. By following the guidelinescontained within the Polymer Exemption Rule, manufacturers maydecrease their regulatory requirements while designing polymersthat are environmentally benign. This valuable guide approaches the manufacture of polymers from twoperspectives, incorporating the principles of green chemistry withthe guidance of the Polymer Exemption Rule to designenvironmentally benign polymers. Designing Safer Polymers is anindispensable working resource for polymer scientists andengineers, as well as corporate decision makers working in thepolymer and chemical industries.
