This text/reference describes the behavior and effects of both natural and man-made organic substances in the environment. It is the first book to explain environmental properties in terms of bonds and molecules, and the first to include toxicity and biological effects among the important properties of organic chemicals. From the characteristics of molecules, to properties of compounds, through distribution and behavior in the environment, and on to effects on living systems, this is a complete look at organic substances, not just a collection of facts. Using the most current information available, it presents not just an introduction to environmental chemistry but also an explanation of how and why environmental processes occur. Basic Concepts of Environmental Chemistry opens with a detailed examination of the basic properties of organic chemicals in the environment. It then expands upon the fundamentals to describe contaminants in the environment and processes that occur in the natural environment. The text concludes with ecotoxicological and risk assessment approaches to the management of hazardous substances. Readers need only a basic knowledge of chemistry to understand the concepts presented in the book. Written in clear, simple language, it is an ideal introductory text for undergraduate and graduate students in the many areas of science that intersect environmental organic chemistry.

Today there is worldwide concern that many of our human activities are endangering—perhaps permanently—the quality of the environment. We must act fast to address these growing problems. The second edition of Principles of Environmental Chemistry exposes readers to environmental issues from a perspective that appreciates that chemical reactions drive all natural processes and outlines the connection between those processes and human behavior. Written for students with knowledge of general chemistry, this text provides the tools needed to understand the underlying chemical processes operating in the environment, while demonstrating how challenging it is to measure these systems. With this concept of interdependence students will begin to understand pressing environmental issues like ozone depletion, global warming, air and water pollution, and the hazards of radioactivity.

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.

In contrast to the classical books which largely focus on separate, individual physicochemical and biological aspects, this book aims to integrate the frontiers of knowledge on the fundamentals and the impact of physicochemical and biological interactions and processes of AOCs in soil, sediment, water and air. The specific objectives of this book are to address: (1) fundamental biophysico-chemical processes of AOCs in the environment, (2) occurrence and distribution of AOCs in air, water, and soil, and their global cycling, (3) the state-of-the-art analytical techniques of AOCs, and (4) restoration of natural environments contaminated by AOCs. The book also identifies the gaps in knowledge on the subject matter and as such provides future directions to stimulate scientific research to advance the chemical science on biophysico-chemical interfacial reactions in natural habitats. By virtue of complex nature of the interactions of AOCs with different environmental components and matrixes, no single available technique and instrument is satisfactory yet for determining their fate, transport, availability, and risk in the environment. In order to fully understand the biophysico-chemical interactions and processes of AOCs in the environment, it is critical to know chemical, physical and biological properties of AOCs and their analytical techniques. The book is unique because of its multidisciplinary approach as it provides a comprehensive and integrated coverage of biophysico-chemical reactions and processes of AOCs in various environments, associated analytical techniques, and restoration of natural environments contaminated by AOCs.
