Abstract

The ample use of nanomaterials has led to increasing demand in the chemical industry. Hence, many chemicals such as solvents, raw materials, reagents, and template materials, have been utilized in order to produce nanomaterials. In addition, the production of toxic or hazardous intermediates and products, as well as wastes has increased through reactions aiming at preparing desirable chemicals. The concept of green chemistry was introduced to chemical science and industry to reduce or eliminate the generation of undesirable products and to decrease the use of hazardous materials in chemical processes. This chapter will discuss green routes that have been applied in chemical processes to synthesize various nanomaterials.
