Green Chemistry provides a unique forum for the publication of innovative research on the development of alternative sustainable technologies.

The scope of Green Chemistry is based on, but not limited to, the definition proposed by Anastas and Warner (Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice, P T Anastas and J C Warner, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1998). "Green chemistry is the utilisation of a set of principles that reduces or eliminates the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and application of chemical products."

The journal publishes original and significant cutting-edge research that is likely to be of wide general appeal. Coverage includes the following, but is not limited to:

-The design of new, greener and safer chemicals and materials

-The development of environmentally improved routes, synthetic methods and processes to important products

-Methodologies and tools for measuring environmental impact and application to real world examples

-The use of biotechnology alternatives to chemistry-based solutions

-The use of sustainable resources

-Characterisation of natural and affected environments

-Chemical aspects of renewable energy

-Behaviour, prevention, treatment and control of mineral, organic and radioactive pollutants

-Interfacial studies involving media such as soil, sediment, water, air, organism, and food

-Green chemistry, environmentally friendly synthetic pathways, and alternative fuels

-Environmental analytical chemistry, biomolecular tools and tracers e.g. stable isotopes

-Environmental processes and modeling

-Environmental technologies, remediation and control

-The application of innovative technology to establish industrial procedures

-Environmental processes and modelling

-Environmental technologies, remediation and control
