About this book

With international concern increasingly focussed on environmental issues, Chemistry, Energy and the Environment emphasises the interrelationships between these three important topics and incorporates their practical and fundamental aspects. Attention is given in particular to i) energy sources, storage and conservation for the 21st century and the relationship of these to environmental concerns; ii) the importance of chemistry in the environmentally-friendly production of energy; and iii) the approach to energy and the environment in the chemistry curriculum. There is also discussion on selective topics including the environmental and health legacy of the nuclear waste issue and the development of new materials to capture solar energy. Documenting the latest research and providing overviews on specialised topics, Chemistry, Energy and the Environment will be of interest to a wide range of readers, from chemists to energy researchers, battery manufacturers to nuclear waste managers.


Chemistry - friend or foe of the environment?; catalysis in the service of the environment; the challenge of the environmentally-friendly production of energy; energy sources for 2000 and beyond; nuclear waste; electrochemical decontaminations; materials development. (Part Contents).
