This Special Issue covered topics in the field of Green Chemistry. One of the 12 principles in Green Chemistry is “Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries” which is reasonably covered in this Special Issue and examples are shown using ionic liquids [1], water [2], and a solvent-free system [3]. Another principle, “Catalysis”, is also covered, showing that novel heterogeneous catalysts can be used in various reactions [4–6]. Non-covalent derivatives that can be applied to proceed “Less HazardousChemical Syntheses” are presented by one of the founders of Green Chemistry (J.C. Warner) in this Special Issue [7]
