Overview

The basics of environmental chemistry and a toolbox for solving problems

Elements of Environmental Chemistry uses real-world examples to help readers master the quantitative aspects of environmental chemistry. Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms to help readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems. Topics covered include: steady- and non-steady-state modeling, chemical kinetics, stratospheric ozone, photochemical smog, the greenhouse effect, carbonate equilibria, the application of partition coefficients, pesticides, and toxic metals. Numerous sample problems help readers apply their skills. An interactive textbook for students, this is also a great refresher course for practitioners.

A solutions manual is available for Academic Adopters. Please click the solutions manual link on the top left side of this page to request the manual.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The work is very suitable for use as a textbook of environmental chemistry…" (Angewandte Chemie, 2008-47/14)

"A stand-alone text aimed at upper-level undergraduate chemistry or chemical engineering majors or at first-year graduate students." (International Journal of Environmental and Analytical Chemistry, March 2008)

"...a pleasure to review this shrot volume which treats the subject of environmental chemistry in an appropriate manor as an essentially quantitative discipline." (Chemistry World, November 2007)

"[This book] can be recommended to university lecturers."(Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 2008)
