Abstract :
Chemistry is truly very helpful to us as its applications are used globally for numerous purposes. Almost all products have been manufactured involving one or more chemical processes. Therefore, we cannot imagine our life without the products produced by the chemical industry. However, to obtain our desired products, always a large amount of wastes and hazardous materials are generated. “Green Chemistry” is the universally accepted term which describes the movement towards more environmentally acceptable chemical processes and products.
