Hence it requires a need for Green Chemistry to incorporatequantitative tools to evaluate the greenness of new chemical processes, a LifeCycle Assessment (LCA) for both environmental and economic issues.

Clean Chemical Synthesis in Water - Organic chemistry

Green chemistry is essentially the design of chemical processes and procedures that reduce or eliminate the use, or the generation, of hazardous substances.

The synthesis of "Fine Chemicals" represents one of the main goals in organic synthesis and this new book extensively examines the main processes and procedures for their preparation under eco-friendly conditions.


The ability of chemists to redesign chemical transformations to minimize the generation of hazardous waste is an important first step in pollution prevention. By preventing waste generation, we minimize hazards associated with waste storage, transportation and treatment.


International Journal of Green and Herbal Chemistry (IJGHC) is an open access peer-reviewed international forum for scientists involved in research to publish quality and refereed papers. Papers reporting original research or extended versions of already published in conference papers are also welcome. Papers for publication are selected through peer review to ensure originality, relevance, and readability. The journal ensures a wide indexing policy to make published papers highly visible to the scientific community. Review articles would be contributed by prospective authors who wish to contribute a review paper in the Journal. In this case, authors must consult the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editor with an extended summary and outline before preparing the article. International Journal of Green and Herbal Chemistry (IJGHC) shall provide for a comprehensive coverage of physical, chemical and biological research relating to the analysis, detection, measurement and elucidation of all environmental processes. Herbal research and Ayurveda has been known since ancient times whereas Green Chemistry approach is totally new but, both these favor environment and humanity unlike the approach of synthetic medicines. The subject coverage by the International Journal of Green and Herbal Chemistry (IJGHC) may be summarized as follows

Green Chemistry in Organic Synthesis

The principles of green chemistry are being housed in IJGHC. Green Chemistry focuses on reducing, recycling, or eliminating the use of toxic chemicals in chemistry by finding creative ways to minimize the human and environmental impact without stifling scientific progress. This journal covers subjects relating to reducing the environmental impact of chemical substances and fuels by developing alternative and sustainable technologies that are non-toxic to living things and the environment. IJGHC shall also cover the management of contaminants in all natural and anthropogenic environments, with special emphasis on the effects of exposure to contaminants and associated health risks. IJGHC also focuses on air Pollution Control, Alternate Energy Technologies, Biofuels, Green Engineering, Solid and Hazardous Waste, Sustainable Biorefineries, Wastewater Treatment, Water Pollution Control, Pharma-Ecology, Pharmaceuticals and personal care products. This journal also covers the past, present, and future of green chemistry and green engineering, Heterogeneous catalysis, Homogeneous catalysis, Biocatalysts, Biorenewable resources, Cleaner synthesis technology, The design of new, greener and safer chemicals and materials, The application of innovative technology to establish industrial procedures , designing greener, safer chemical synthesis ,designing greener, safer chemical manufacturing processes, Microwave synthesis, Green synthesis, QSR technology for organic compounds ,Nano Science & Technology, Bio toxicology, Agricultural & Soil Chemistry, new synthesis chemistry, etc .
