Concluding Remarks The Green Context

DMC and other dialkyl carbonates offer powerful perspectives for the development of alkylation/carboxyalkylation methods with low environmental impact. Moreover, these reactions are catalytic processes whose high selectivity allows minimization of the production of waste and of unwanted by-products as well.

Much more than in any previous period, mankind is living the binomial of "safeguarding the environment" and "implementation of the quality of life" where chemistry is the key science and, in particular, investigations in the area of green chemistry need to be a growing commitment for the chemical community. Educational programs in green chemistry, which are blossoming within IUPAC and other scientific organization, are establishing a new basis for communication between the chemical sciences and society.
