Many syntheses can be made by physical, chemical or biological methods. However, these methods have many disadvantages such as the use of toxic chemicals harmful to humans, animals, plants and the environment during the synthesis phase, high energy requirement and cost. Researchers have started to work on reducing or eliminating these negative effects in recent years. For this purpose, the concept of Green Chemistry emerged. Green chemistry, also called sustainable chemistry, is a field of chemical and chemical engineering that focuses on the design of products and processes that will minimize or eliminate the use and production of hazardous substances. It play an important roles in biomedicine, nanomedicine, regenerative medicine, pharmaceutics, environmental remediation, catalysis, etc. Over the course of the past decade, green chemistry has demonstrated how fundamental scientific methodologies can protect human health and the environment in an economically beneficial manner. This review explains the importance of Green Chemistry with a series of illustrative examples
