This first in-depth and comprehensive reference on the most pertinent polar contaminant classes and their behavior in the whole water cycle includes, among others, industrial chemicals, consumer products, polar herbicides and pharmaceuticals. All chapters are uniformly structured, covering properties, pollution sources, occurrence in wastewater, surface water, and groundwater as well as water treatment aspects, while ecotoxicological and assessment aspects are also covered. Among the authors are leading experts in their relevant fields, many of whom provide here groundbreaking research results.
The result is an up-to-date information source for researchers and professionals working in water quality monitoring, water supply, or wastewater treatment, as well as environmental and water chemists, geochemists, ecologists, chemists and engineers.
Thorsten Reemtsma is a lecturer in environmental chemistry and analytical chemistry at the Technical University of Berlin and senior researcher in the Department of Water Quality Control. His research is focused on the fate of polar organic pollutants in industrial and municipal wastewater treatment and in the environment. To this end, he has developed analytical methods using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry for the determination of many classes of polar pollutants at trace level as well as for metabolite identification.
Martin Jekel is Full Professor for Water Quality Control at the Technical University of Berlin. After gaining his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Karlsruhe he began investigating water quality problems in wastewater reuse during his post-doc research at Stanford University, among others. After moving to Berlin in 1988, he investigated physico-chemical water and such wastewater treatment processes as coagulation, oxidation, adsorption and membrane processes, including natural systems, such as bank filtration and groundwater recharge. He is a member of many national and international organizations such as IWA, AWWA and DVGW, and since 2003 Chairman of the German Water Chemical Society.
The Water Chemical Society was founded in 1926 and is a division of the German Chemical Society. Its international membership combines scientists of all disciplines involved in water research as well as engineers working on its treatment, from academia and authorities, from public and private companies. The members concentrate on maintaining and improving the quality of all kinds of water, from springs to seawater, improving its treatment by appropriate techniques and processes, and developing the analysis and evaluation of water quality. With these activities, the Society aims to protect water and aqueous systems as part of our environment as well as a resource for human use and development.
