Description / Abstract:

The use of organic solvents and their emissions has been at the centre of major environmental concern in recent years, and there is currently a great deal of interest in finding alternatives to halogenated and volatile organic solvents for synthesis. Chemistry in Alternative Reaction Media explores why solvents are used and the problems associated with them. It describes the state-of-the art in solvent replacement technologies. Supercritical fluids, biphasic reactions, ionic and fluorous liquids, and aqueous chemistry are brought together in a single textbook, which explains how they may be used to increase reaction efficiency, improve separation and catalyst recovery, and reduce emissions to the environment. As well as describing the principles behind these methods, and the environmental, economic and chemical advantages that these alternatives can bring, numerous examples of applications are given including most major reaction types, and consideration is given to potential scale-up and industrial use. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in organic synthesis; reaction chemistry; catalysis; and process development, and to undergraduate and graduate students of organic chemistry; catalysis; green chemistry; clean technology and environmental chemistry courses.
