Green Chemistry in Russia
Green Chemistry in Russia, the latest book in the Green Chemistry series produced by the Subcommittee on Green Chemistry, is now available. Previous titles in this series include Green Chemistry in Africa and Green Chemistry in Latin America.
Written in Russian, the book presents the topic in an easily understandable way and provides examples from ongoing work in the field of green chemistry. The book will be disseminated in Russia and the former USSR republics, such as Byelorussia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan.
Pietro Tundo, Valery Lunin, and Ekaterina Lokteva were co-editors of the book. Chapters were written by well-known specialists from different regions of Russia, including Far East, Siberia, Ural, Russian North, and Moscow. The chapter topics reflect different aspects of green/sustainable chemistry that are of the most importance to each region.
It is hoped that the publication of this book will accomplish the following:
- attract and enhance attention towards green/sustainable chemistry in general
- encourage students to specialize in the field of green/sustainable chemistry
- improve understanding of the importance of green/sustainable chemistry between industrial chemists
- elucidate the importance of the development of Green/Sustainable Chemistry in Russia and former USSR countries
