Green Chemistry Drives Opportunities for Innovation

Abstract:
Meanwhile, in an initiative to research green microwave chemistry scale-up methods, CEM Corporation (Matthews, NC), a top developer of microwave laboratory instrumentation, entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) "to develop large-scale, microwave chemistry methods for a wide variety of chemistries using solvents that are more environmentally friendly, such as water or polyethylene glycol (PEG)," according to a CEM statement.

"These environmentally-friendly solvents could be employed to produce valuable intermediates and products useful in the development of pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, and nanomaterials," according to the CEM statement.
