Green chemistry is the practice of creating chemical items and methods that diminish or totally dispose of the utilize or generation of unsafe compounds. This speaks to new, progressive advancement within the study of chemistry. The 12 directing standards for green chemistry were to begin with recognized in 19th century and utilizing on pharmaceutical sector as well as standard of living. This review article describing different challenges facing on the green chemistry and underline the positive impact on the environment and creates the modern financial openings. Within the future utilizing green chemistry to assist reach supportability objectives is coming a progressively attractive investigate zone. This review article concluded that the reusing is a basic part of green chemistry since it shields of people, animals, and plants from unsafe chemicals on the environment.

Keywords: Green chemistry, green technology, environmentally being chemistry, challenges, environmental impact, applications
