A compilation of the most important aerosol chemical processes involve d in known scientific and technological disciplines, Aerosol Chemical Processes in the Environment serves as a handbook for aerosol chemistr y. Aerosol science is interdisciplinary, interfacing with many environ mental, biological and technological research fields. Aerosols and aer osol research play an important role in both basic and applied scienti fic and technological fields. Interdisciplinary cooperation is useful and necessary. Aerosol Chemical Processes in the Environment uses seve ral examples to show the impact of aerosol chemistry in several differ ent fields, mainly in basic and atmospheric research. The book describ es the most important chemical processes involved in the various scien tific and technological disciplines.

Editorial Reviews

This compilation discusses how aerosol science interfaces with environmental, biological and technological research areas. The 28 chapters are arranged under the headings of general aspects, laboratory studies, aerosol synthetic chemistry, aerosols and building, and aerosols in the atmosphere. Topics include the role of aerosol particles in the phase transition in the atmosphere, radioactive labeling in experimental aerosol research, fundamentals and performance of the MCVD aerosol process, damage to stone monuments, and chemical characteristics and temporal variation of size-fractional urban aerosols and trace gases in Budapest.
