Green Chemistry

Chemistry is undergoing a revolution in which the aims of the science are shifting towards greener and more efficient methods, and green chemists are working towards making this happen. Environmental concerns are the biggest challenge to affect Chemistry since its conception, and green chemists are fighting against long-held beliefs to recreate a set of laboratory and industry techniques that use much fewer solvents and starting materials and are ultimately waste - and pollution free for a green future.
