Handbook of green chemistry


In the first of three volumes on green catalysts in the 12-volume set Handbook of Green Chemistry, chemists in Europe and North America survey homogeneous catalysts and catalytic processes that are less damaging to the environment than conventional ones. Among their topics are principles of atom economy and some examples, microwave-accelerated homogeneous catalysis in water, the immobilization and compartmentalization of homogeneous catalysts, hydrogenation for forming carbon-carbon bonds, organocatalysts, and homogeneous catalyst design for synthesizing aliphatic polycarbonates and polyesters.
