Description

In 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 1 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.

"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)
