This exciting new book is a collection of selected research topics delivered by scientists involved in some of the more prominent fields of green chemistry. It is devoted to the synthesis of fine chemicals by the use of alternative eco-friendly solvents (ionic liquids, polyethylene glycol, water, etc.), supported organic catalysis, microwave irradiation or high pressure as contributors to more efficient processes, photochemistry as green procedure and solvent-free processes. The book provides an overview of the major methods engaged in creating more environmentally-responsible processes and procedures for the synthesis of fine chemicals. This is a valid resource for researchers and industrialists as well as academia.
