Synopses & Reviews
Handbook of Greener Synthesis of Nanomaterials and Compounds, Volume One: Fundamental Principles and Methods provides a comprehensive review of developments in this field, combining foundational green and nano-chemistry with key information researchers need to assess, select and apply the most appropriate green synthesis approaches to their own work. Beginning with a clear introduction to the fundamentals of green synthesis that places synthesis in the context of green chemistry, the book goes on to discuss key greener physical, chemical and biological methods for synthesis, before going on to discuss greener synthesis at the macro and nanoscales.
Further chapters explore the potential for synthesis at the industrial scale, synthesis from renewable sources, and environmental aspects of greener synthesis. Drawing on the experiences of a global team of expert contributors, this book provides an indispensable guide for all those interested in understanding, identifying, developing or applying greener synthetic approaches in their work.
