About this book

This book presents chemical analyses of our most pressing waste, pollution, and resource problems for the undergraduate or graduate student. The distinctive holistic approach provides both a solid ground in theory, as well as a laboratory manual detailing introductory and advanced experimental applications. The laboratory procedures are presented at microscale conditions, for minimum waste and maximum economy. This work fulfills an urgent need for an introductory text in environmental chemistry combining theory and practice, and is a valuable tool for preparing the next generation of environmental scientists.

Aus den Rezensionen: "Das Buch ! kann so optimal im Laborbereich als Handbuch eingesetzt werden. Insgesamt sind 24 Versuche von der Durchfuhrung und Beschreibung eines Versuchs, einem Auswerte- und Laborberichtsvorschlag sowie ... einem Literaturverzeichnis entsprechend dargestellt. ! Das Buch ist didaktisch fur diese Versuche sehr gut aufgebaut und kann hervorragend als Grundlage fur Versuche herangezogen werden. ... Es ist fur Studenten und Interessierte sehr zu empfehlen ... Erganzt wird in dem Buch stets der Versuch auch durch sehr gute Literaturhinweise !" (Herbert Pollmann, in: der Aufschluss, 2008, Issue 4, S. 236)
