9780471839415: Environmental Organic Chemistry (Environmental Science and Technology Series)

Demonstrates how the chemical structure of organic compounds influences the molecular interactions which control transfer and reaction processes in the natural environment. Thoroughly explains how to quantify these processes using the principles of chemistry, physics and biology in a macroscopic environmental system. Focuses on the behavior of major synthetic organic chemicals introduced in large quantities into the environment. Contains more than 100 illustrations, an extensive bibliography and useful reference material such as constants, units and equations. Serves as a text for introductory courses in environmental organic chemistry as well as a source of information for the professional concerned with risk and hazard assessment of organic chemical pollutants in the environment.

From the Back Cover:

An updated, expanded edition of the authoritative text in environmental organic chemistry

Environmental organic chemistry focuses on compound properties and environmental factors governing the processes that determine the fate of organic chemicals in natural and engineered systems; this knowledge is then applied to quantitatively assessing the environmental behavior of organic chemicals. Long established as the discipline’s authoritative text, the second edition of Environmental Organic Chemistry boasts the assets of its predecessor, along with complete coverage of the latest advances in the field.

The Second Edition offers a more holistic view of the physical-chemical properties of organic compounds, as well as a helpful division of chapters into sections covering basic and sophisticated material. New topics such as gas/solid partitioning, bioaccumulation, and transformations in the atmosphere are covered alongside the core material of the first edition, and of the companion "Problems Book." Divided into four main parts–Equilibrium Distribution Between Gaseous, Liquid, and Solid Phases; Transformation Processes; Modeling Tools: Transport and Reaction; and Environmental Systems and Case Studies–the book’s chapters include:

  • Molecular interactions and thermodynamics
  • Activity coefficient and solubility in water
  • Air-water and solvent-water partitioning
  • Sorption to organic and inorganic sorbents
  • Bioaccumulation, biomagnification, and nonspecific toxic effects
  • Thermodynamics and kinetics of transformation reactions
  • Biological transformation reactions
  • Internal transport by diffusion and advection across boundaries
  • Models for lakes, rivers, and groundwaters

Expert authors Schwarzenbach, Gschwend, and Imboden provide the complete theoretical background of the subject, as well as illustrative examples, problems, and case studies. Like the first, the second edition of Environmental Organic Chemistry is an invaluable resource for all industry, government, and academic professionals dealing with assessing organic pollutants in the environment.
