The first four chapters of the book deal with the most fundamental principles of chemistry along with an introduction to green chemistry. Organic chemistry and biochemicals are introduced in Chapter 5. Later chapters discuss energy, the environmental and green chemistry of water, the atmosphere and atmospheric chemistry, the biosphere and biological processes, the geosphere and soil, industrial ecology, and feed stocks. There is a separate chapter on terrorism and its relationship to green chemistry. The last chapter, “The Ten Commandments of Sustainability,” lays out ten principles to be followed if sustainbility is to be achieved.
