About this book

This expanded, revised, and updated second edition of Innovations in Green Chemistry and Green Engineering provides a comprehensive introduction to the state-of-the-art in this key area of sustainability research. Processes that meet the objectives of green chemistry and chemical engineering minimize waste and energy use, and eliminate toxic by-products. Given the ubiquitous nature of products from chemical processes in our lives, green chemistry and chemical engineering are vital components of any sustainable future. Peer-reviewed articles from worldwide experts present the latest developments on topics ranging from organic batteries and green catalytic transformations to green nanoscience and nanotoxicology. Now under the leadership of distinguished Editors from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, this volume in the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology, Second Edition, is an essential, one-stop reference for professionals in research and industry. The book also fills the need for an authoritative course text in environmental and green chemistry and chemical engineering at the upper-division undergraduate and graduate levels.

About the authors

Prof. Buxing Han received his Ph.D. at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), in 1988, and did postdoctoral research from 1989 to 1991 at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. He has been a professor at the Institute of Chemistry, CAS, since 1993. He is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences; a fellow of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS); a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry; the chairman of the Green Chemistry Committee, Chinese Chemical Society; the former chairman of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) Subcommittee on Green Chemistry; and a former titular member of Division III of IUPAC. He is serving more than 10 peer-reviewed scientific journals. His current research interests include physicochemical properties of green solvent systems and transformation of CO2 and biomass into valuable chemicals and fuels.

 

Dr. Tianbin Wu received his Ph.D. from China University of Petroleum, Beijing, in 2006. He was assistant professor at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), from 2006 to 2008. Since 2009, he has been an associate professor at the Institute of Chemistry, CAS. Dr. Wu has research interests in catalysis reaction, materials chemistry, and green chemistry.
