With growing public concern over global warming and greenhouse gases, we want to understand how human actions affect the health of our planet. We are deeply concerned about pollution. We practice recycling. Moreover, we want to secure a healthy Earth for future generations. We have a unique opportunity to start at the ground floor of the exciting and expanding field of green chemistry. Green chemistry is also known as environmentally benign chemistry, or sustainable chemistry. Green chemistry involves the development of chemical products and synthetic procedures, which are environmentally friendly and have reduced health risks with the search for more efficient methods to do chemistry. Its roots stem back ten years from a simple idea to a prominent concept, which permeates all areas of modern chemistry, which strives to reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances. Green chemistry impacts a wide array of fields including pharmaceuticals, pesticides, polymers, and many others.
