About this book

The new edition of this textbook introduces the basic chemical concepts underlying a sound understanding of environmental science and ecology. Fundamental chemical principles are explained and illustrated with real examples from the environment. From an introduction to atomic and molecular structure, the text progresses to more advanced areas within physical, inorganic, organic and analytical chemistry. Important new sections for this new edition include an introduction to the concepts of biogeochemical cycling, and the role environmental chemistry plays with respect to climate, notably global warming and ozone depletion. The case studies have been up-dated, and a section about toxic chemicals has been added. While the primary aim is to satisfy the needs of the non-chemist, the text also serves to introduce environmental precepts to chemists who wish to apply their expertise to environmental issues. This volume is especially suitable for undergraduates in environmental science, environmental chemistry and ecology at universities, colleges and technical institutes.

Media reviews
This book has much to recommend it. Well arranged with excellent graphics and a comprehensive index it is, as the first part of the title suggests, a comprehensive introduction to chemistry for those not taking a chemistry degree ... The book is well worth the modest paperback price of GBP19.95.

"[...] a good overview [...] allows one to appreciate the importance of chemistry to environmental analysis."
- TEG News

"[...] a very potent attempt to summarise important chemical information for the non-specialist student."
