About this book

Determination of Organic Compounds in Soils, Sediments and Sludges is the first volume which comprehensively discusses the range of methods available for the analysis of organic compounds in soils, river and marine sediments and industrial sludges. The book commences with a review of the instrumentation used in soil and sediment laboratories and indicates the types of organics that can be determined by each technique. Subsequent chapters discuss the analysis of various types of organics in a logical and systematic manner, with the author providing guidance on the applicability of techniques in certain environments, the advantages and disadvantages of using one method over another, likely interference, the sensitivity of particular techniques, and detection limits. This book is an essential reference for chemists and toxicologists involved in water resource management, agrochemistry, fisheries and public health.
