In the pharmaceutical arena, the most significant issue is green technology. This is due to the fact that, it decreases the cost of drugs, reducing the environmental influence of the arena and improving the human health and safety. Deep eutectic solvents (DES), a novel kind of green solvent, have some focused attributes such as, low vapor pressure, high thermal stability, low cost, biodegradability, and high viscosity. Green solvent metrics with attention to functionality and environmental, safety, and health influences from a progression and life cycle view are likewise addressed and practical to common and unique solvents.As a developing research field, DESs have previously received important research consideration from chemistry scientists.
