Graphical Abstract:


Green chemistry plays an important role in the development of sustainable production systems which involves tremendous research efforts on the design of synthetic and analytical techniques through resource-efficient ways. The improvement in synthetic reaction performances encourages the modern society to minimize energy and reagent consumption and waste generation. Explosion of the chemicals are referred as extremely toxic substances and have been allied with major harmful health effects, though no cure has been established due to the lack of curative therapeutic approaches. In view of the facts, green chemistry strategies trigger a new hope in the synthesis of safer biologically active compounds to meet the demands of disease free environment. Here, we highlighted the development of various compounds and greener techniques such as ultrasoundassisted method, microwave-assisted method, green solvent reactions, solvent free reactions, biomolecules and nanoformulations as a new healthy approach.

Keywords: Green solvents, microwave assisted synthesis, ultrasound-assisted synthesis, nanocatalysts, solvent free approaches, biomolecule, nanoformulations, green chemistry techniques.
