Principles of Green Chemistry - Solvents

The principles of green chemistry aim to reduce both the environmental impact and the potential negative health effects of chemicals and chemical synthesis.
The principles aim to raise awareness of greener alternatives to many of the commonly used solvents in chemical processes today.

Energy Efficient

Solvent Energy Life Cycle Assessment

Which solvents have lower energy formation rates?

Reduced Hazard

Which ethers have low peroxide formulation rates even when unstabilized at 20°?

Lower Toxicity

Which Dipolar Aprotic solvents are not classified as CMRs?

The majority of dipolar aprotic solvents are CMR thus pending for further regulation under REACH and possible future ban.

Renewable Carbon Footprint

Which renewable solvents could be used in organic synthesis?
