A call to (green) arms: a rallying cry for green chemistry and engineering for CO2 capture, utilisation and storage

Abstract

Chemists, engineers, scientists, lend us your ears… Carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS) is among the largest challenges on the horizon and we need your help. In this perspective, we focus on identifying the critical research needs to make CCUS a reality, with an emphasis on how the principles of green chemistry (GC) and green engineering can be used to help address this challenge. We identify areas where GC principles can readily improve the energy or atom efficiency of processes or reduce the environmental impact. Conversely, we also identify dilemmas where the research needs may be at odds with GC principles, and present potential paths forward to minimise the environmental impacts of chemicals and processes needed for CCUS. We also walk a different path from conventional perspectives in that we postulate and introduce potential innovative research directions and concepts (some not yet experimentally validated) in order to foster innovation, or at least stoke conversation and question why certain approaches have not yet been attempted. With elements of historical context, technological innovation, critical thinking, and some humour, we issue a call to arms and hope you may join us in this fight.

The Green ChemisTREE: 20 years after taking root with the 12 principles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The field of Green Chemistry has seen many scientific discoveries and inventions during the 20 years since the 12 Principles were first published. Inspired by tree diagrams that illustrate diversity of products stemming from raw materials, we present here the Green ChemisTREE as a showcase for the diversity of research and achievements stemming from Green Chemistry. Each branch of the Green ChemisTREE represents one of the 12 Principles, and the leaves represent areas of inquiry and development relevant to that Principle (branch). As such, in this ‘meta-review’, we aim to describe the history and current status of the field of Green Chemistry: by exploring activity within each Principle, by summarizing the benefits of Green Chemistry through robust examples, by discussing tools and metrics available to measure progress towards Green Chemistry, and by outlining knowledge gaps, opportunities, and future challenges for the field.

Diet rich in tomatoes and apples may help restore lung damage caused by smoking — Med-Chemist

New Drug Approvals

A study from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found the natural decline in lung function over a 10-year period was slower among former smokers with a diet high in tomatoes and fruits, especially apples, suggesting certain components in these foods might help restore lung damage caused by smoking.The researchers found that adults…
