Green Sustainable Process for Chemical and Environmental Engineering and Science: Organic Synthesis in Water and Supercritical Water provides an in-depth review of purification and extraction methods for medicinal, analytical, engineering and bioactive compounds utilizing green chemistry protocols. It focuses on the synthesis of natural products and drugs, using industrial green solvents, water, supercritical water, and more. The book explores applications in organic synthesis and processing, including aqueous and non-aqueous promoted reactions. Aqueous media and supercritical water involved in organic synthesis are discussed for industrial use. Final sections cover green solvent assisted organic synthesis, such as addition, rearrangement, condensation, and more.
- Provides a broad overview of green solvents for sustainable organic synthesis
- Compares water and supercritical water as green solvents vs. conventional solvents
- Outlines eco-friendly organic synthesis and chemical processes using water/supercritical water
- Includes industrial/pharmaceutical production development using water and supercritical water as solvents
- Outlines synthetic methods for polymers, drugs etc., using water and supercritical water as solvents

Prof. Abdullah M. Asiri is the Head of the Chemistry Department at King Abdulaziz University since October 2009 and he is the founder and the Director of the Center of Excellence for Advanced Materials Research (CEAMR) since 2010 till date. He is the Professor of Organic Photochemistry. His research interest covers color chemistry, synthesis of novel photochromic and thermochromic systems, synthesis of novel coloring matters and dyeing of textiles, materials chemistry, nanochemistry and nanotechnology, polymers and plastics. A major achievement of Prof. Asiri is the discovery of tribochromic compounds, a class of compounds which change from slightly or colorless to deep colored when subjected to small pressure or when grind. This discovery was introduced to the scientific community as a new terminology published by IUPAC in 2000. This discovery was awarded a patent from European Patent office and from UK patent. He is also a member of the Editorial Board of various journals of international repute. He is the Vice- President of Saudi Chemical Society (Western Province Branch). He holds four USA patents, more than 800 Publications in international journals, seven book chapters, and ten books
