original publication and its translation are to promote and disseminate
awareness of environmentally compatible synthetic pathways (green
chemistry) throughout the academic and industrial scientific research
community. In 1999 an IUPAC project was initiated to publish a Symposium-in-Print
on Green Chemistry, and to compile a collection of expert reviews
on aspects of the topic, underpinned by an introductory account
of the evolution of the project, its rationale, and its interfaces
with complementary initiatives and organisations.
volume represents the culmination of that undertaking. The introductory
overview gives a detailed account of the role and interest of IUPAC
in promoting this initiative and provides an account of the historical
emergence of the concept. This is followed by a synoptic preamble,
in which the content and purpose of individual reviews in the issue
are summarized. The Symposium-in-Print captures the current status
of the discipline and projects the boundless opportunities and challenges
confronting contemporary organic synthesis and its practice in a
changing world, increasingly sensitized to the finite bounds of
natural resources and the vulnerability of the biosphere. The issue
offers evidence that current problems are being addressed and can
be solved, and engenders expectations that future problems can be
anticipated and prevented.
