Handbook of green chemistry


Chemists introduce colleagues and students to the various methodologies developed so far for synthesis in supercritical fluids and gas-expanded liquid. Their focus is on chemical synthesis where the fluid is not only used as a mass separation agent, but also directly affects the molecular transformation. The topics are arranged to walk readers through the stages of the process. They include high-pressure methods and equipment, synthetic organic chemistry in supercritical fluids, polymerization in supercritical carbon dioxide, photochemical and photo-induced reactions in supercritical fluid solvents, and chemistry in near-critical and supercritical water.
