Databook of Green Solvents, Second Edition, includes data and information that is divided into five separate sections: General, Physical, Health, Environmental and Use. Readers interested in this subject should note that two other volumes on all essential areas of solvent usage have also been published. They include Handbook of Solvents. Volume One, Properties and Handbook of Solvents, Volume Two: Use, Health, and Environment. Together, these books provide the most comprehensive information on the subject matter. The books are the authoritative sources of knowledge, with information updated from the most recent literature and developments occurring in the field of solvents.
- Contains more than 300 green solvents, from biodegradable and biorenewable, to siloxanes and perfluorocarbons
- Provides practical information for use in the lab and in the field, including recommended processing methods, recommended dosages and potential substitutes
- Provides critical health, safety and environmental data to help production chemists and engineers select the correct solvent
- Emphasis is placed on safer, more efficient replacements of more toxic solvents
