MECHANOCHEMISTRY: A GREEN SOLUTION IN CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS
Efforts to encourage economic, environmentally and user friendly synthetic method has continued to gain general support of researchers and general society in recent time. Mechanochemistry is a key way that has proved to be safety conscious and hazard minimizing and control production/reaction methods. Mechanochemical synthesis can be described as an application of green chemistry which has as its aim the usage of chemical products and processes in such a way that it eliminates the use or generation of hazardous substances from its design, manufacture and use. This paper attempts to review the emerging principles and potentials of mechanochemistry as a green way to synthesis and cleaner production of chemical products without the use of which are toxic and are potentially harmful to human health and environment. Based on this work, researchers are encouraged to intensify efforts on improving mechanochemical based manufacturing technique.
