Description

Encouraging a new attitude and approach to chemistry, this is the first such collection designed for lab courses and experimental teaching. Experts from around the globe present over 40 real-life teaching experiments, all clearly structured and divided into the five main principles of sustainable and green chemistry: catalysis, solvents, high yield and one-pot synthesis, limiting waste and exposure, as well as special topics.
With a foreword by Nobel prize winner Jean Marie Lehn.
