This focused collection of papers is devoted to recent developments in ‘green chemistry’, especially the applications of catalytic methods, involving both chemo- and biocatalysis. The development of catalytic processes is an important current theme in organic chemistry, since it aims to reduce the environmental impact of the industrial synthesis of chemicals and polymers by replacing stoichiometric reagents with catalysts and also exchanging harmful organic solvents with less detrimental alternatives. Green processes can also result in lower costs of goods and starting materials as well as in the use of less harmful and toxic reagents, which delivers benefits in terms of safety and disposal of waste byproducts.
