Author Biography - Roger Arthur Sheldon
All three authors, Roger Arthur Sheldon, Isabel Arends, Ulf Hanefeld, are currently employed at the TU Delft. Their research is directed towards the development of atom-efficient, low-waste processes for the synthesis of high added value chemicals, such as pharmaceuticals and chiral intermediates. Within the framework of green chemistry the aim is to respond to the public need towards the 12 principles of green chemistry.
