About this book

This textbook focuses on water as a renewable resource from a green chemistry and sustainability perspective. Stanley Manahan, a renowned environmental author, explains how the hydrospere relates to the other four environmental spheres. The book contains chapters on basic chemistry and organic chemistry useful to those readers whose fundamental knowledge of chemistry is limited and includes coverage of pollution, wastewater and water treatment.

A solutions manual is available with qualifying course adoption.

!it is a thorough review, and by virtue of its simple but clear diagrams and plain English makes the text easy to follow and understand. There is continuity between chapters, thus allowing a smooth flow between the various subjects whilst adding to its easy-reading nature. --Chromatographia, March 2011,73:1039
