In alignment with the 12 principles of green chemistry, green reagents offered by J&K Scientific (synthetic reagents, solvents, catalysts and ligands) are designed to support sustainable and clean chemistry.

Solvents such as 2-methyl-tetrahydrofuran (2-MeTHF), derived from renewable resources (e.g. furfural or levulinic acid) is an example of a promising solvent alternative for environmentally benign synthesis strategies.

Another example is cyclopentyl methyl ether (CPME), which has been used as an alternative to hazardous solvents in chemical synthesis. A detailed toxicity study of CPME and its wide synthetic applications support its use as a green and sustainable solvent of choice for modern chemical transformations.
