About this book

Environmental chemistry is a fast emerging discipline aiming at understanding the fate of pollutants in ecosystems and at designing novel processes that are safe for humans and ecosystems. Past pollution should be cleaned. Future pollution should be predicted and avoided. Chapters review nanotechnology for pollution detection and remediation; health risks caused by endocrine disruptors and heavy metals, and applied techniques to clean water, soil and air. Uncommon but visionary topics include social chemistry, chiral pharmaceuticals and DDT, and geochronology of pollutants.


Section 1. Air and water pollution
Section 2. Remediation
