"Green Chemistry: Fundamentals of Sustainable Chemical Science and Technology" covers the emerging area of green chemistry including pertinent aspects of industrial ecology and environmental chemistry. In so doing it includes coverage of basic principles of chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry for readers who may not have backgrounds in these subjects. It is organized around the four environmental spheres commonly recognized in the environmental sciences — air, water, earth, and life — plus a fifth sphere, the anthrosphere, consisting of human activities and structures made by humans. A unique feature of the book is a chapter on terrorism and the role of green chemistry in combating terrorist threats. The specific chapters in the book are the following: (1) Chemistry, Green Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry; (2) The Elements: Basic Building Blocks of Green Chemicals; (3) Compounds: Safer Materials for a Safer World; (4) Chemical Reactions: Making Materials Safely Without Damaging The Environment; (5) The Wonderful World of Carbon: Organic Chemistry and Biochemicals; (6) Energy Relationships; (7) Green Water; (8) Air and The Atmosphere; (9) The Biosphere: How The Revolution in Biology Relates to Green Chemistry; (10) The Geosphere, Soil, And Food Production: The Second Green Revolution In Agriculture; (11) The Anthrosphere and Industrial Ecology; (12) Feedstocks: Maximum Utilization of Renewable and Biological Materials; (13) Terroism, Toxicity, and Vulnerability: Chemistry in Defense of Human Welfare.

Stanley E. Manahan is Professor 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 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, toxicological chemistry, and waste treatment. His classic textbook, "Environmental Chemistry" is the longest standing title on this subject in the world. Other books that he has written are "Toxicological Chemistry and Biochemistry," 3rd ed. (CRC Press/Lewis Publishers, 2001), "Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry," 2nd ed. (CRC Press/Lewis Publishers, 2000)," Industrial Ecology: Environmental Chemistry and Hazardous Waste" (CRC Press/Lewis Publishers, 1999), "Environmental Science and Technology" (CRC Press/Lewis Publishers, 1997), "Hazardous Waste Chemistry, Toxicology and Treatment" (Lewis Publishers, 1992), "Quantitative Chemical Analysis," (Brooks/Cole, 1986), and "General Applied Chemistry," 2nd ed. (Willard Grant Press, 1982). He has lectured on the topics of environmental chemistry, toxicological chemistry, waste treatment, and green chemistry throughout the U.S. as an American Chemical Society Local Section Tour Speaker, and has presented plenary lectures on these topics in international meetings in Puerto Rico; the University of the Andes in Mérida, Venezuela; Hokkaido University in Japan; the National Autonomous University in Mexico City; Italy; and Bordeaux, France. He was the recipient of the Year 2000 Award of the Environmental Chemistry Division of the Italian Chemical Society. His research specialty is gasification of hazardous wastes.
