Grinding chemistry, greening chemistry

Fri, 2014-03-21 17:05

What if you could re-engineer chemical processes so that instead of using toxic solvents or expensive catalysts, you could incite molecules to bind simply by grinding them together? McGill Chemistry Professor Tomislav Friscic is a leader in the field of mechanochemistry. Read more about his work in "Grinding chemistry" from the Chemical Institute of Canada.
