Green chemistry is founded on principles that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture, and use of chemicals. 4. While the goal of green chemistry is simple, its implementation can be quite complex, and often calls for highly advanced methods and practices. A broader perspective, but one that springs from the same motivation, is the field of green engineering, which seeks to provide a framework for the design of new materials, products, processes, and systems that are benign to human health and the environment.
