This book covers the emerging science of green chemistry, the practice of sustainable chemistry, at a basic level. An introductory chapter on sustainability science is followed by six chapters on basic chemistry including organic chemistry and biological chemistry. The remainder of the book discusses sustainability and green chemistry based upon five spheres of the environment: (1) Hydrosphere, (2) atmosphere, (3) geosphere, (4) biosphere, and (5) anthrosphere. The last two chapters cover (1) green chemistry in combatting terrorism and (2) the "ten commandments of sustainability" along with a brief discussion of some proposed measures to enhance sustainability.

Stanley E. Manahan is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he has been on the faculty since 1965. He received his A.B. in chemistry from Emporia State University in Kansas in 1960 and his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of Kansas in 1965. Since 1968, his primary research and professional activities have been in environmental chemistry, with recent emphasis on hazardous waste treatment. His latest research has involved gasification of wastes and gasification of sewage sludge and crop byproduct biomass for energy production. Professor Manahan has taught courses on environmental chemistry, hazardous wastes, toxicological chemistry, and analytical chemistry and has lectured on these topics throughout the U.S. as an American Chemical Society Local Sections tour speaker and in a number of countries including France, Italy, Austria, Japan, Mexico, and Venezuela. Professor Manahan has written books on environmental chemistry (Environmental Chemistry, 9th ed., 2010, Taylor & Francis/CRC press, and Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry, 3rd ed., 2009, Taylor & Francis/CRC press), aquatic chemistry (Water Chemistry: Green Science and Technology of Nature’s Most Renewable Resource, 2010, Taylor & Francis/CRC press) general chemistry (Fundamentals of Sustainable Chemical Science 2009, Taylor & Francis/CRC press), hazardous wastes and industrial ecology (Industrial Ecology: Environmental Chemistry and Hazardous Waste, 1999, Lewis Publishers/CRC press), toxicological chemistry (Toxicological Chemistry and Biochemistry, 3rd ed., 2002, Lewis Publishers/CRC press), applied chemistry, and quantitative chemical analysis. He is the author or co-author of approximately 90 research articles.
