About this book

International scientists offer crucial reviews concerned with the environmental chemistry and toxicity of oxidants and their role in pollution control. This volume deals with various methods used in sampling and analyzing gaseous contaminants in the atmosphere, with an emphasis on understanding the chemical and physical processes that take place. This study evaluates the condition of current measurement technology, profiles current research results, and outlines the research challenges that lie ahead in this field. Additionally, the book provides an authoritative overview of the sources, occurrences and characterization of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in indoor environments.


Photosynthetic Oxygen Evolution; Oxidants in the Unpolluted Marine Atmosphere Ozone Formation in Urban Plumes; The Impact of Dynamics and Transport on Stratospheric Ozone and Other Constituents; Aqueous Sulfur Oxidation Revisited; Oxidative Mechanisms of Phototoxity; Effects of Ozone in Human Studies; Some Haematological Effects of Oxidants; Impact of Oxidants on a Forest Area Assessed With Dynamic Maps; Alternative Attainment Criteria for a Secondary Federal Standard for Ozone.
