About this book

The presence of concentrations of organic substances in water is a matter of increasing concern to the water industry, environmentalists, and the general public alike from the point of view of possible health hazards. This comprehensive reference draws together and systemises the vast body of information available on the occurrence and determination of organic substances in all types of non-saline and saline natural and treated waters. Determination of Organic Compounds in Natural and Treated Waters provides a comprehensive description of organic compounds in all natural and treated water types. To enable the user quick access to the relevant compound/water type, a series of tables facilitate rapid access to specific topics. The book opens with a brief discussion of current analytical techniques employed in the determination of organics in water. Methods are provided in broad outline, with the author providing guidance on their applicability, the advantages and disadvantages of one method when compared to another, possible interferences, sensitivity, and detection levels. This book is an essential reference for analytical chemists working in industry in the water utilities, those working in government and non-government organisations and regulatory agencies, chemical companies producing aqueous effluents, and for environmental and analytical consultants.
