Green chemistry in India*
Department of Chemistry, University of Delhi, Delhi
Abstract: Our environment, which is endowed by nature, needs
to be protected from ever-increasing chemical pollution. The challenge
for the institution and industries is to come together and pursue development
in the field of greener chemistry by reducing or eliminating the use
and generation of hazardous substances. We have organized a national
and international symposium for promoting green chemistry in India,
which has provided the platform for interaction of concepts among the
leading scientists. The main idea behind this to activate work toward
green chemistry for which involvement of academic, industrial, and governmental
and non-governmental bodies is needed collectively, which will help
the designing and development of environment-friendly chemistry practices
