Greener Organic Transformations (Paperback)
James Clark holds Chairs at the University of York and Fudan University. He has been at the forefront of green chemistry research and education for over 20 years and has won numerous awards and prizes. He was the founding scientific editor of the journal Green Chemistry and editor-in-chief of the RSC Green Chemistry Book series. Christian Stevens is senior full professor at Ghent University. His research focusses on the reduction of the footprint of chemical processes by developing new chemical methodology, by using continuous flow chemistry and by incorporation of renewable building blocks in chemical processes. He is also organizer of the International Conference on Renewable Resources and Biorefineries. Anwar Jardine is Associate Professor at the University of Cape Town. He worked in the Pharmaceutical and Personal Care industries in the US. After 8 years in industry he returned to academia where he established research in carbohydrate chemistry as applied to the design of antimicrobials and anticancer drugs. He is passionate about adding value to polysaccharide-based biomass waste in the context of Green Chemistry. Dr Avtar S Matharu is Senior Lecturer and Deputy Director of the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence, University of York. His research focusses on renewable resources and materials, in particular unavoidable food supply chain wastes. He developed the Greener Reactions and Sustainable Processes (GRASP) concept to encourage academia and industries to change from traditional methodologies to those more sustainable.
