ABSTRACT
Growing public concern over protecting our environment obligates chemists, including analytical chemists, to change chemical activity in such a way that it will be conducted in an environmentally friendly manner. The article provides an overview of green chemistry issues relating to sample preparation techniques, concentrating especially on the green advantages of so-called solventless sample preparation. Current sample preparation techniques, fulfilling the demands of green chemistry standards, are presented, along with consideration of their features and advantages.
