As with the first edition, Environmental Chemistry in Society takes a nonmathematical approach to the material, presenting the chemistry of the environment in a way accessible to students who have little or no science background. It relates the fundamentals of chemistry to contemporary environmental issues. The author covers the essential background material in science, chemistry, and toxicology, including the laws of thermodynamics, chemical bonding, and environmental toxins. He then applies scientific principles to environmental problems concerning energy, air quality, the atmosphere, water quality, and waste management.
