Green Chemistry and Engineering presents the green approach as an essential tool for tacking problems in chemistry. A novel feature of the text is its integrations of introductory engineering concepts, making it easier to move from fundamental science to applications. This text covers introductory concepts in general, organic, inorganic, and analytical chemistry as well as biochemistry.

At the same time, it integrates such concepts as greenhouse gas potential, alternative and renewable energy, solvent selection and recovery, and ecotoxicity, helping readers design chemical products and processes that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
