About this book

This book discusses recent developments in the study of chemical processes and equilibria in the marine environment and in the air/water and water/sediment interfaces. The chemical cycle of carbon as well as the effect of organic substances on the speciation and distribution of inorganic and organometallic substances are extensively discussed. Much of the recent progress in the area is the direct result of advanced analytical technologies and chemometric applications which are highlighted in the book.


From the contents: Introduction.- Environmental Analytical Chemistry as a Tool for Studying Chemical Processes in the Marine Environment.- The Carbonate System in the Marine Environment.- Marine Organic Geochemistry: A General Overview.- Photooxidation of Dissolved Organic Matter: Role for Carbon Bioavailability and for the Penetration Depth of Solar UV-Radiation.- Redox Processes in Anoxic Waters.- Organic Matter Preservation in the Ocean: Lipid Behavior from Plankton to Sediments.- Organic Chemical Reaction Rates in the Ocean: Molecular Approaches to Studying Extracellular Biochemical Processes.- Vapour-Particle Phase Interactions of Some Selected Persistent Organic Pollutants in the Marine Atmosphere.- Determination of Organic Complexation.- Organic Complexation of Metals in Seawater.- Occurrence, Pathways and Bioaccumulation of Organometallic Compounds in the Marine Environment.- Hydrolysis Processes of Organotin(IV) Compounds in Seawater.- ...
