About this book

Environmental chemistry is a new, fast developing science aimed at deciphering fundamental mechanisms ruling the behaviour of pollutants in ecosystems. Applying this knowledge to current environmental issues leads to the remediation of environmental media, and to new, low energy, low emission, sustainable processes. This book describes the state-of-the-art advances regarding the pollution of water, soils, atmosphere, food and living organisms by toxic metals, fossil fuels, pesticides and other organic pollutants. Furthermore, the eco-toxicology section presents novel bio-assays to assess the toxicity of various pollutants such as dioxins and endocrine disrupters within complex media. The green chemistry section highlights novel chemical reactions based upon environmentally friendly conditions. The analytical chemistry section describes very sensitive methods which trace the fate of pollutants in complex ecosystems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book consists of 69 chapters, which are organized around seven themes: analytical chemistry, toxic metals, organic pollutants, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, pesticides, Green chemistry, and ecotoxicology. ... all the articles describe up-to-date research in areas that are currently of concern. Thus, this book will mainly be useful for practitioners in the field who wish to explore areas related to their current research or as a course resource for graduate students. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (H.E. Pence, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (11), July, 2005)

"Environmental Chemistry is a fast-developing discipline aiming at understanding the fate of pollutants in ecosystems and at designing novel processes that are safe for ecosystems. This book is a collection of 69 papers arranged into seven topics … . it will be of interest to scientists who are working in specific domains dealt with." (International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 85 (15), 2005)
