About this book

As environmental controls are lagging behind industrial development metals are an increasing hazard to humans, animal and plant life. Bioaccumumlation of metals through the food chain creates serious impact on public health yet often analytical techniques for detecting the often low concentrations of contaminants are poorly understood. Determination of Metals in Natural and Treated Water draws together scattered literature and presents in a systematic fashion the latest available analytical techniques for detecting metals in non-saline and saline natural and treated water. Broad outlines of different methods and their applicability in certain situations are given, allowing the chemist to choose appropriate test methods. This volume is an essential reference for environmental analytical chemists, toxicologists and the medical community in the water, agrochemistry, fisheries and waste management industries and the public sector, including enforcement and public health.
