About this book

This text classifies and organizes the reactions of environmentally important organic compounds using concepts and data drawn from traditional mechanistic and physical organic chemistry. It should help readers understand these reactions and their importance for the environmental fates or organic compounds of many types. The book has a molecular and mechanistic emphasis, and it is organized by reaction type. Organic molecules and their fates are examined in an ecosystem context. Their reactions are discussed in terms that organic chemists would use. The book should be of use to organic chemists, environmental engineers, water treatment professionals, hazardous waste specialists and biologists. Although intended as a comprehensive monograph, the book could also be used as a text or reference for environmental chemistry classes at the undergraduate or graduate level.


Organic Chemicals in the Environment. Hydrolysis. Reduction. Environmental Oxidations. Reactions With Disinfectants. Environmental Photochemistry. Molecular Reactions: The Diels-Alder and Other Reactions.
