Special Issue Information Green chemistry is one of the most important research themes of the 21st century, and is an inevitable trend of chemistry. In resolving conflicts between economic development, resource consumption, and environmental protection, the role of green chemistry have become increasingly important. The development of green chemistry will result in significant development in chemistry and other relevant areas, as well as variation in manufacturing mode of chemical industry. Although green chemistry has undergone rapid development over the last two decades, it is still in a stage of infancy. The development of green chemistry is a long and arduous task that mankind has entrusted to researchers in the related fields.
Many challenges in green chemistry are the issues of physical chemistry. The purpose of this special issue is to present some latest interdisciplinary achievements of physical chemistry and green chemistry obtained by domestic researchers.
