Abstract

In our current globalized world, green chemistry is becoming the strength leading towards sustainable development. It is evident that that many academic institutions and industries recognize the importance of innovations in green chemistry. It is imperative to teach the value of green chemistry to future generations. Chemistry and its application plays vital role in many industries such as medicine. Green chemistry is tool for innovation which includes business, education and economy to build a sustainable future. Hence, we should now concentrate on innovation in green chemistry to reduce the environmental damage and eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances. There are various innovations in green chemistry such as renewable feed stocks, use of catalysts in experiments, proper disposal of waste, design of safer chemicals and auxiliaries, design for degradation and reactions with more efficient syntheses and high efficiency formulation. This conceptual paper addressing innovations in green chemistry and steps need to be taken by various industries to incorporate green chemistry for a sustainable development.

Keywords: Green chemistry, Innovations, Design of safer chemicals, High efficiency formulations, sustainable development
