Streamlining free radical green chemistry
MetadataShow full item record
This practical and concise guide showcases the sustainable methods offered by green free radical chemistry and summarizes the fundamental science involved. It discusses free radical chemistry in aqueous systems for synthetic applications. Useful background knowledge is linked with examples, including industrial scale processes for pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals.The book shows that, armed with a basic knowledge of kinetics, an understanding of the mechanistic and technical aspects, and some common sense, it is possible to harness radicals for use in a broad range of applications. Aimed at chemists, engineers, materials scientists, biochemists, biomedical experts, and students, it encourages readers to question conventions and move towards the "Benign-by-Design" approach of the future.
