About this book

It is increasingly realised that the distribution, mobility and biological availability of chemical elements depend not simply on their concentrations but, critically, on the forms in which they occur in natural systems. This new edition provides an overview of the current status of speciation science and indicate how the field may develop in the future.

...this book is highly recommended for a broader scientific readership. It should not only find its place on the bookshelf of analytical chemists and 'speciation researchers' but can also serve as an excellent source of information for environmental scientists outside the specialised community. - Journal of Environmental Monitoring
