Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Green chemistry is a chemical philosophy encouraging the design of products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances.
  • The idea of “green” solvents expresses the goal to minimize the environmental impact resulting from the use of solvents in chemical production.
  • Green chemistry, also called sustainable chemistry, is a philosophy of chemical research and engineering that encourages the design of products and processes that minimize the use and generation of  hazardous substances.
  • Synthesis, characterization, and applications of green solvents including: - Water , Alcohols , Ionic liquids , Fluorous media , Renewable Solvents , Supercritical Fluids , Gas Expanded Liquids , Task-specific designer solvents.
  • Solvents are important to provide one or more liquid phases for chemical reactions and processes. While some solvents are available from Nature, most of the solvents are manmade.
  • In the last years gold has become one of the heterogeneous catalysts of choice for processes as important as hydrogenation and selective and total oxidation reactions. Gold heterogeneous catalysts have been found to address at least 8 of the 12 Green Chemistry Principles.
  • Ionic liquids have been described as designer solvents , and this means that their properties can be adjusted to suit the requirements of a particular process. Properties such as melting point, viscosity, density, and hydrophobicity can be varied by simple changes to the structure of the ions.
  • Ionic Liquids Markets Worldwide will reach 3.4 billion US $ by 2020 from 300 Million today. A new updated study by Helmut Kaiser Consultancy show a strong increase of the ionic liquid markets worldwide. 990 new patents demonstrade the interest in ionic liquids. The potentials and prospects for ionic liquids use are vast and the growth too.
  • US compnaies and german companies lead the market and developments with a share today of 70 percent. But Japan and China follow and increase their market shares.
  • There is growing interest in developing more environmentally acceptable processes in chemical or biotechnological industries. This trend towards what has become known as sustainable technologies can be defined as green chemistry and white biotechnology, when the emphasis is focussed on chemical or biotechnological processes, respectively
