What does green chemistry look like?

When people ask me what my research interests are, I often say, “Green Chemistry.” Then they usually ask me what that means and I’m (temporarily) stuck for an answer because green chemistry is such a broad field. This breadth is neatly reflected in a recent issue of Chemical Review ( Volume 107, Issue 6, June 13, 2007) which contains 21 separate articles on different aspects of green chemistry, including doing chemical reactions in water and liquified CO2, new types of catalysts, new efficient energy sources like microwaves and sunlight, designing materials for enhanced biodegradability, and using biomolecules as reagents and catalysts. If you have time for only one article, I recommend “Innovations and Green Chemistry” by Horvath and Anastas for its nice summary of contemporary green chemistry.

Here is a complete list of article titles and links.
