We are delighted to announce that the Green Chemistry themed issue Marine-based Green Chemistry is now online and free to access until the end of January 2023.
Sustainability is the color of Cyan: from the terrestrial green to the marine blue, our planet’s finite resources must be not only preserved, but utilized in a sustainable way. We live on a blue planet with over two thirds of the surface covered in water. The oceans have the potential to provide resources, such as food, biopolymers to replace plastics, and minerals to replace mining, but this environment is also under threat from plastic, pollution, and CO2 levels.
Guest Edited by Professor Robin D. Rogers and Professor Francesca M. Kerton, this collection is dedicated to the sustainable development of ocean resources at the interface of green technology and the blue economy..
