Concern for our planet and its well being is forcing chemists to think about greener, more sustainable processes to make the things we need and want, such as new technologies, fuels and drugs.

In the pharmaceutical industry, solvent selection plays a huge role in determining the ‘greenness’ of a process. In his Chem Soc Rev tutorial review, Peter Dunn (Pfizer Worldwide Research and Development) gives a basic guide to green chemistry, with information on solvents and solvent selection, basic environmental metrics collection and three industrial case histories.
