INTRODUCTION TO GREEN CHEMISTRY
Importance of Green Chemistry in our ecosystem
Why do chemicals matter ? Chemicals and chemistry are everywhere. Chemistry is life but Chemicals are a like a Double edged sword.
They are the solution to many of our problems- But the cause of many hazards as well…
Chemical contamination: Evidence from biomonitoring suggest that contamination is so much extensive that they are almost found in every part of our body, even the umbilical cord and the breast milk has been tested positive for
- Flame retardants (e.g . PBDEs)
- Phenols (e.g.Bisphenol A)
- Stain repellants (e.g .Perflourinated surfactants)
- Dioxins (e.g.TCDD)
- Plasticizers (e.g.Phthalates)
- Furans (e.g. TCDF)
- Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)
- Organochlorine pesticides (e.g.DDT,Hexachlorobenzene).
287 synthetic chemical pollutants detected in umbilical cord blood Mercury Polyaromatic hydrocarbons, Polybrominated dibenzodioxins and furans Perfluorinated chemicals Polychlorinated dibenzodioxins and furans, Organochlorine pesticides, Polybrominated diphenyl ethers Polychlorinated napthalenes ,Polychlorinated biphenyls Chemical contamination : From disasters in the chemical industry
In 1976 , a chemical plant in Sevesco, Italy that manufactured pesticides and herbicides released a dense cloud of tetrachlorodibenzoparadioxin ( TCDD) , contaminating tens square miles of land 2000 people were treated for dioxin poisoning.
In 1984, a methylisocyanate leak at a Union Carbide chemical plant in Bhopal ,India ,killed thousands of people
Green chemistry,also called benign chemistry is at the heart of industrial Ecology
Green chemistry runs hand in hand with Sustainable development in industrial ecology. Global chemical contamination has a solution – Green chemistry. Green chemistry (sometimes called ‘’ sustainable chemistry’) is a design strategy. It aims to prevent problems rather than clean them up later. Green chemistry is a RADICAL approach is to focus on institutionalized and industrially embedded approach is to focus on exposure reduction . Green chemistry focus on reducing the hazard.
Our in house developed ROS reduces dependency on solvents drastically which are extreme environmental hazards.
RR Cyromazine is manufactured by completely by an innovative “GREEN CHEMISTRY” with “ROBUST PROCESS” without using any solvents and getting high purity and yields . •Patent Pending •
Our process has drastically reduced dependency on solvents which are also the major contributors to the overall toxicity profile . On average, they contribute the greatest concern for process safety issues because they are flammable volatile and explosive .Solvent in cyromazine drug may impact on bird’s health and productivity.
In many cases, reactions wouldn’t proceed without solvents, Moreover solvents accounts for about 75% of the cumulative life cycle environmental impacts of a standard batch chemical operation.
