An updated collection of detailed procedures used to degrade and dispose of a broad range of hazardous chemicals whether in bulk quantities, solutions in various solvents or spills. This edition features new chapters on the removal of metal ions and biological stains from solution; the degradation of mycotoxins, enzyme inhibitors, polycyclic heterocyclic hydrocarbons and highly reactive reagents such as butyllithium, peracids and phosgene as well as the use of much less hazardous reagents including molecular sieves. A list of hazardous compounds indexed by name, molecular formula and CAS Registry Number offers ready access to the data.
“The writing is clear and precise, molecular structures and diagrams are clearly labelled, and procedures appear to be up-to-date, efficient, and adaptable . . . Summing Up: Essential. Graduate students through professionals/practitioners in academic, commercial, or industrial chemical laboratories.” (Choice, 1 November 2012)
