To mark the occasion of Green Chemistry completing fifteen years of publication we invited contributions from authors who have had highly cited articles from each of the past 15 years. The result is a growing web collection covering topics of current importance in green chemistry from those who have contributed to developing the field. Details of the contributors, their highly cited article from the year they are representing, and their recent contribution are below.
Two recent additions to the collection are from Professor Chinzia Chiappe (University of Pisa), and Dr Peter Dunn (Pfizer).
Professor Chiappe’s 2006 article ‘Acute toxicity of ionic liquids to the zebrafish (Danio rerio)‘ is amongst the highest that year. She has continued on this ionic liquids theme by contributing to the 15 years of Green Chemsitry collection a Critical Review asking ‘Are ionic liquids a proper solution to current environmental challenges?‘
In 2007, Dr Dunn was the lead author on a Perspective article produced from the ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundable entitled ‘Key green chemistry research areas—a perspective from pharmaceutical manufacturers‘. His contribution to the 15 years of Green Chemistry collection is another Perspective with an Industrial theme ‘Pharmaceutical Green Chemistry process changes – how long does it take to obtain regulatory approval?’.
All of these articles are free to access until the end of July 2014. The 15 Years of Green Chemistry collection will be added to throughout 2014 and you can access the articles by clicking on the titles below, or look at the full collection of recent articles online here.
