In the recent past, the green chemistry has become an independent branch of chemistry because it is being extensively used in the industrial manufacture of various chemicals, drugs and other related products. The present text includes the various aspects of green chemistry. It is expected to be useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students of chemistry, biotechnology, chemical engineering and other related fields.
