Misuse of Sustainability Concept May Lead to Even More Toxic Chemical Materials
20-March-2015

Replacement of toxic chemical components by non-toxic natural analogs is a popular approach in sustainable projects. The study carried out at Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry (Moscow) has shown that partial replacement of chemical compounds by their natural analogs may surprisingly lead to even more toxic products.
