The environmental impact from solvent waste of chemical industries underscores the current need to find “greener” and more sustainable alternatives. “Green Chemistry” or “Sustainable Technology“, as it is known today, can be shortly defined as a chemical working process, utilizing raw materials, eliminating waste and avoiding the use of toxic and hazardous reagents and solvents. Solvents define the major part of environmental performance of processes in chemical industry and also impact on cost, safety and health issues. Thus, the present review article focuses on the various aspects and applications of ‘green’ solvents.
