This book presents comprehensive coverage of green chemistry techniques for organic and medicinal chemistry applications, summarizing the available new technologies, analyzing each technique's features and green chemistry characteristics, and providing examples to demonstrate applications for green organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry. Since publication of the first edition in 2012 the fields of green chemistry and green engineering have continued to show explosive growth. Green Techniques for Organic Synthesis and Medicinal Chemistry, 2nd Edition presents an updated overview of this developing field; extensively revised with more than 30% new and updated material, the new edition also includes 7 entirely new chapters on topics including Green Chemistry and Patents, Green Chemistry Metrics, Green Chemistry and Biological Drugs, and The Business Case for Green Chemistry in the Pharmaceutical Industry. The book is divided into 4 parts as follows:Introduction: Introduces the reader to the concepts of green chemistry and green engineering, global environmental regulations, green analytical chemistry, green solvents and green chemistry metrics. Includes new chapters on `Green Chemistry and Entrepreneurship', `Green Chemistry Considerations in the Formulated Products Industry', and `Green Chemistry and Patents'. Green Catalysis: Covers a variety of green catalytic techniques including organocatalysis, solid-supported catalysis, biocatalysis, fluorous catalysis, and catalytic C-H bond activation reactions.Green Synthetic Techniques: Discusses a series of important and evolving green chemistry techniques, including solvent-free synthesis, ultrasonic reactions, photochemical synthesis, solid-supported synthesis, fluorous synthesis, multicomponent reactions, flow reactors and ionic liquids in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.Green Techniques and Strategies in Pharmaceutical Industry: Includes chapters on preparative chromatography, green drug delivery formulations green chemistry and biological drugs. Process and business case studies are included to illustrate applications in the pharmaceutical industry. This book is an essential resource on green chemistry technologies for academic researchers, R&D professionals and students working in organic chemistry and medicinal chemistry. Reviews of the 1st editionGreen Processing and Synthesis"In summary, the book covers new advances in green chemistry, which are applied in the pharmaceutical industry. It also shows ways of introducing innovation in a more holistic manner, through the development of smart equipment, techniques, or innovative chemicals....Both newcomers and experts in medicinal chemistry will enjoy reading the developments in green manufacturing...Industrial applications are interestingly and well described, showing the value of green chemistry in trying to decrease waste generation disposal and energy consumption, and to improve other sustainability indicators. Industrial experts can use these special chapters as a guide, motivation and justification to implement the green idea into the daily manufacturing business of their companies."
