About this book

Reviews and recommends practical methods for estimating environmentally important properties of organic chemicals.

An update of (my) Handbook has been long overdue...I was especially pleased to see the new Handbook be under the creative leadership of Bob Boethling and Don Mackay...who have been true leaders in the field of environmental chemistry for the last 20 years... I look forward myself to having this new Handbook on my special bookshelf... -Warren J. Lyman, from the foreword
