Thank you so much Sir! The book contains elaborate concepts. I was expecting some visual diagrams.
excellent book especially for UG and PG students
Very nice book and full of knowledge. Bst book for me in chemistry.
It is a student friendly book and covers very important concepts of green chemistry in a very systematic manner. I strongly recommend it to the people who want to make a clear understanding of green chemistry.
This is my go to book for Green Chemistry. It has been lucidly written in a clear language and genuinely ignites interest in the subject.
The book is exceptionally good initiative by the author especially keeping in view the lack of conceptual knowledge among the freshers of the subject. Also I hope the book can widen the horizon of our students regarding the environmental ethics in relation to chemistry.
I would personally like to recommend this book to all chemistry and engineering students as it discusses basic concepts of Green chemistry in a systematic manner and lucid language.
It is nice piece of writing with lucid language. I hope that this book will be helpful to every chemistry student.
This book is easy to understand & very useful. I recommend it to all.
