[Extract] The Green Chemistry Group links Dublin City University and Trinity College Dublin in a program of clean synthesis of pharmaceuticals. Application of solar photochemistry, organocatalysis and ionic liquids to drug synthesis, yields methods which are energy efficient, atom efficient and selective. Ease of recovery of products, reagents and solvents leads to less waste. Catalytic amounts of toxic reagents reduce noxious by-products and the application of metal-free organocatalysts leads to reactions with an extremely low toxicity profile.
