PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY T. Melani M. Fernando 9839 http://blog.saintandsmith.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/antibiotics.jpg OVERVIEW Background & introduction to green chemistry Application of green principles in the pharmaceutical industry and its current trends Global focus and future planning "hurt not the earth, neither the sea,
nor the trees."
-Ronald C. D. Breslow. http://www.epa.gov/sciencematters/june2011/images/steps.jpg ".....The utilization of a set of principles that reduces or eliminates the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and applicaton of chemical products." http://www.newscientist.com/data/images/ns/cms/mg20527511.500/mg20527511.500-1_500.jpg How did green technology come in to picture and why is it important? http://www.baraka.lk/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/control-pollution-and-save-planet-21304647.jpg Two main branches;
Green Chemistry and Green Engineering The 12 Principles of Green Chemistry Prevention Atom Economy Less hazardous chemical
synthesis Designing safer chemicals Safer slovents and auxiliaries Design for energy efficiency Use of renewable feedstock Reduce derivatives Catalysis Design for degradation Real-time analysis for pollution
prevention Inherently safer chemistry for
