ABOUT THE BOOK
Important and expensive medicines for half, quarter or even tenth price, is that possible? Yes, that is possible through consistent application of the »radical and concerted simplification of chemical synthesis«. This technology saves the most extensive resources and energy. Basics and examples are shown in the book. Accompanying the scientific text is also the author’s versatile career through chemistry.
Preface to »Radical and concerted simplification of chemical synthesis 1«
Radical changes to essential industries are breaking ground at the start of this third millennium. As politics and ideologies – both socialist and capitalist – have not yet managed to provide our rapidly burgeoning population with a prosperous future, it appears that technology alone will have the capacity to support progress as the only rational institution around. Back in 1903, Rudolf Diesel the inventor of the Diesel motor, had already set the milestone for this prospect in his book: »Solidarismus: Natürliche wirtschaftliche Erlösung des Menschen« [Solidarity: The natural economic salvation of humanity]1. Following on from the computerisation of informatics, we are going to replace the obsolete thermal engine-based carbon and uranium economy with a sustainable and resource-conserving electricity production. This type of production uses the easy to handle solar power as well as high-yield conversion of wind, water and tide kinetic energy without adding further heat to our atmosphere. Electric mobility is one logical and beneficial consequence of this progress.
Another essential industry, chemistry, has not yet begun this metamorphosis. But the prerequisites for such a metamorphosis are already present in the form of multicomponent reactions (MCRs). These reactions, in combination with other synergisms, enable radical concerted simplification of chemical syntheses. This book opens up the gate to understanding this industrial innovation, creating a new path for manifold, inexpensive materials and substances which will benefit the whole world.
