The Handbook of Greener Synthesis of Nanomaterials and Compounds, Volume Two: Synthesis at the Macroscale and Nanoscale combines foundational green and nano-chemistry with the key information researchers need to assess, select and apply the most appropriate green synthesis approaches to their own work. Beginning with a selection of chapters on a range of macroscale topics, the book goes on to explore such important areas as metal nanoparticle synthesis, biogenic synthesis, and the synthesis of enzymes. Further chapters explore the role of Metal Organic Frameworks' in greener synthesis, synthesis from renewable sources, and the impacts of nanomaterials synthesized by greener methods.

Key Features

  • Discusses the synthesis of widely different groups of chemical compounds and distinct materials
  • Reviews synthesis at both the macro and nanoscales, including information on metal-organic frameworks, carbon dots and ionic liquids
  • Provides examples of applications to support learning and guide implementation of theory in practice


Researchers, students, teachers, R&D teams and engineers across both academia and industry who use synthesis as part of their work, including synthetic chemists and chemical engineers; green, medicinal and analytical chemists; materials and nanotech scientists; pharmaceutical, toxicological and forensic scientists. Libraries in universities and industrial institutions, government and independent institutes, and individual research groups
