Abstract

Purpose: The chemistry society has activated to expand new chemistry that is less destructive to the environment and human health. This approach has extensive interest and designated as green chemistry, environmentally friendly chemistry, clean chemistry, and atom economy.


Methodology: There is advancement toward involved chemistry with the facts and do not prevent the properties of the target compound or the efficacy of particular solvents or reagents. The use of chemistry in a way that maximizes benefits while reducing adverse effects has come to be green chemistry.


Main findings: Reduce the use and formation of harmful products or by-products. Presently maximum pollution to the environment is caused by some chemical industries. So, need to design and develop synthetic methods in such a way that the waste products are lowest and have no effect on the environment and their handy disposal.


Applications of the work: Green chemistry plays a vital role in pharmaceuticals for developing new drugs which are less toxic, more effective with low side effects.


The novelty of the work: The industries performing manufacturing using green synthesis methods to carrying out their productions have positive impacts on environmental sustainability. This review is looking ahead at longer-term challenges and prospects in research, industrial applications, and education.
