About the Series
The RSC is pleased to announce the launch of a new book series on Green Chemistry. Green Chemistry is one of the most important and rapidly growing concepts in modern chemistry. Through national awards and funding programmes, national and international course, networks and conferences, and a dedicated RSC journal, Green Chemistry is now widely recognised as being important in all of the chemical sciences and technologies, and in industry as well as in education and research. The RSC Green Chemistry book series is a timely and unique venture aimed at providing high level research books at the cutting edge of Green Chemistry.
- The books will be invaluable to industrialists, researchers and academics worldwide as well as others interested in the practical means that are being used to reduce the environmental impact of chemical processes and products
- Topics covered will include Green Chemistry Metrics; Chemicals from Biomass; Greener Pharmaceutical Products; Alternative Energy Sources; Green Chemistry in Water; Intensive Chemical Processing; Catalyst Heterogenisation; Organic Synthesis using Green Chemistry Methods; Greener Plastics; Oxidations using Green Chemistry; Green Chemistry in Analytical Science; Green Chemistry in Cleaning; Green Chemistry using Biological Systems; Solvent-Free Synthesis; Green Separation Processes; Solid Acids Catalysts; Solid Bases; Chemistry in Non-volatile Media; The Chemistry of Fuel Cells; Environmental Law and Regulations; Evaluating Environmental Impact
- Intended to provide an accessible reference for professionals and researchers in academia and industry
- Fully referenced to the primary literature

Volume 38 of Carbohydrate Chemistry - Chemical and Biological Approaches contains contributions ranging from glycochemistry to glycobiology. This collection demonstrates in a meaningful way how the interdisciplinary approach of an international glyconetwork can advance the field of carbohydrate research in Europe and worldwide.
This book fills a gap as it eases access to organic chemistry by connecting it with plants, and plant photos and stories accompany chemistry topics and chemical structures to aid understanding.
