Green Catalysts

Some of the major advances in chemistry especially industrial chemistry, over the past decade have been in the area of catalysts. Through the use of catalyst, chemists have found ways of removing the need for large quantities of reagents that would otherwise have been needed to carry out the transformations and ultimately would have contributed to the waste stream.
