A world where the emphasis has shifted to being as green and environmentally friendly as possible leads to the requirement of this important 3-book set of the Handbook of Green Chemistry edited by the father and pioneer of Green Chemistry, Professor Paul Anastas.

This series summarises the significant body of work that has accumulated over the past decade that details the breakthroughs, innovation and creativity within Green Chemistry and Engineering.

Edited by the well-known chemist, Professor Robert Crabtree, never before has the subject of green catalysis been so thoroughly covered. 

Set I comprises of 3 books, with each volume focussing on a different area; Homogeneous Catalysis, Heterogeneous Catalysis and Biocatalysis.

An essential collection for anyone wishing to gain an understanding of the world of green chemistry and for a variety of chemists, environmental agencies and chemical engineers.

The Handbook of Green Chemistry comprises of 9 volumes in total, split into 3 subject-specific sets. The three sets are available individually. All 9 volumes are available individually, too.

Set I: Green Catalysis 
  - Volume 1: Homogeneous Catalysis 
  - Volume 2: Heterogeneous Catalysis 
  - Volume 3: Biocatalysis

Set II: Green Solvents
  - Volume 4: Supercritical Solvents
  - Volume 5: Reactions in Water
  - Volume 6: Ionic Liquids

Set III: Green Processes
  - Volume 7: Green Synthesis
  - Volume 8: Green Nanoscience
  - Volume 9: Designing Safer Chemicals

The Handbook of Green Chemistry is also available as Online Edition.

Listen to two podcasts in which Professor Paul Anastas and Journals Editor Paul Trevorrow discuss the origin and expansion of Green Chemistry and give an overview of The Handbook of Green Chemistry.

Author Information

Series Editor
Paul T. Anastas joined Yale University as Professor and serves as the Director of the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale. From 2004-2006, Paul Anastas has been the Director of the Green Chemistry Institute in Washington, D.C. Until June of 2004 he served as Assistant Director for Environment at e White House Office of Science and Technology Policy where his responsibilities included a wide range of environmental science issues including furthering international public-private cooperation in areas of Science for Sustainability such as Green Chemistry. In 1991, he established the industry-government-university partnership Green Chemistry Program, which was expanded to include basic research, and the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. He has published and edited several books in the field of Green Chemistry and developed the 12 principles of Green Chemistry.

Volume Editor
Bob Crabtree took his first degree at Oxford, did his Ph.D. at Sussex and spent four years in Paris at the CNRS. He has been at Yale since 1977. He has chaired the Inorganic Division at ACS, and won the ACS and RSC organometallic chemistry prizes. He is the author of an organometallic textbook, and editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry and Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry. He has contributed to C-H activation, H2 complexes, dihydrogen bonding, and his homogeneous tritiation and hydrogenation catalyst is in wide use. More recently, he has combined molecular recognition with CH hydroxylation to obtain high selectivity with a biomimetic strategy.

"This three-volume set of books covers a wide range of topics within homogeneous, heterogeneous and biocatalysis, with contributions from well-known names in their respective fields. Overall, the books provide an overview of processes and reactions that can be considered ‘green', with indications of where current directions in research may be going. The role of transition metals including the pgms within this area seems assured." (Platinum Metals Review, November 2010)
