About this title

Synopsis:

Covers the design or redesign of chemicals with the specific intent of making them safe for people and the environment. Explains how commercially useful substances of low toxicity can be designed and developed through careful forethought and strategic molecular modification. Describes how existing industrial chemicals that are toxic can be redesigned to be less toxic but retain their usefulness. Discusses how to merge the disciplines of toxicology and chemistry to design new, less toxic commercial chemicals or redesign existing toxic commercial chemicals to result in less toxic substitutes. Provides researchers, developers, and manufacturers of industrial chemicals with a reference source for designing safer chemicals.

Review:

"The book introduces a new approach to address the adverse effects to human health and the environment of chemicals developed and used by an ever advancing industrialized society. This new approach is the concept and practice of designing safer chemicals. . . . Designing of safer chemicals is
a key program of the broader concept of green chemistry, which represents the ultimate interpretation of pollution prevention. Green chemistry is based on the premise that the most desirable and efficient way of pollution prevention is to design commercially used chemicals with minimal or no
toxicity, and design alternative synthetic pathaways [sic] for the new and existing chemicals so that they utilize neither toxic reagents or solvents, nor produce toxic by-products or coproducts. The book provides excellent examples of the design and redesign of chemicals for practical commercial
use."--Cellulose Chemistry and Technology
