Environmental Organic Chemistry focuses on environmental factors that govern the processes that determine the fate of organic chemicals in natural and engineered systems. The information discovered is then applied to quantitatively assessing the environmental behaviour of organic chemicals. Now in its 2nd edition this book takes a more holistic view on physical--chemical properties of organic compounds. It includes new topics that address aspects of gas/solid partitioning, bioaccumulation, and transformations in the atmosphere. Structures chapters into basic and sophisticated sections Contains illustrative examples, problems and case studies Examines the fundamental aspects of organic, physical and inorganic chemistry -- applied to environmentally relevant problems Addresses problems and case studies in one volume
...a comprehensive set of fundamental concepts that provides the quantitative tools necessary to evaluate the fate of the organic chemicals in the environment... (Vadose Zone Journal, May 2007) "...can be considered as the 'Bible of Organic Environmental Chemistry'... will help to establish the subject discipline in the future" (International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, 2004)
