Elements of Environmental Chemistry

From Reviews of the First Edition:«This splendid, at times humorous, and reasonably priced little book has much to commend it to undergraduate chemists and to other science students.» —J. G. Farmer, University of Edinburgh «Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms to help readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems.» —J. Albaiges, University of Barcelona «The main strength of the book lies in its explanations of the calculation of quantitative relationships. Each chapter includes 15-20 problems that are carefully chosen from a didactic standpoint, for which the reader can find solutions at the end.» —D. Lenoir, Institute for Ecological Chemistry «What drew me to the first edition was the style – the no nonsense, down-to-earth explanations and the practical examples that litter the text. The dry humor expressed in the footnotes is great and reminds me of other classic texts.» —T. Clough, Lincoln University A practical approach to environmental chemistry Providing readers with the fundamentals of environmental chemistry and a toolbox for putting them into practice, Elements of Environmental Chemistry, Second Edition is a concise, accessible, and hands-on volume designed for students and professionals working in the chemical and environmental sciences. Tutorial in style, this book fully incorporates real-world problems and extensive end-of-chapter problem sets to immerse the reader in the field. Chapters cover mass balance, chemical kinetics, carbon dioxide equilibria, pesticide structures and much more. Extensively revised, updated, and expanded, this Second Edition includes new chapters on atmospheric chemistry, climate change, and polychlorinated biphenyls and dioxins, and brominated flame retardants. In addition, new practice problems and a helpful tutorialon organic chemistry names and structures have been added to improve both the scope and accessibility of the book.
