This book deals mainly with the problems associated with the contamination of groundwater by MTBE and TBA, but ETBE is also considered. The book, written by recognized specialists in the field, is organized in sections covering state-of-the-art analytical methods, including specific isotopic analysis, occurrence in the environment, transport and degradation processes, treatment technologies and human health risks.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Written by recognised specialists in the field, this book will be of interest to a broad audience of analytical chemists, environmental scientists, toxicologists and technologists working in the field of the water cycle, but also to policy makers and stakeholders that need to manage real-world environmental problems associated with fuel oxygenates contaminating groundwater resources. Overall, the present book is certainly timely since the interest in fuel oxygenates in the environment has grown considerably during the last few years." (International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Vol. 88 (9), August, 2008)
