Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry is a general reference book and textbook that provides the basics of environmental chemistry and can be used across a broad spectrum of applications. The book is perfect for students enrolled in environmentally-oriented one-semester chemistry courses, engineers, regulatory agency personnel, and others who need to have a fundamental knowledge of chemistry or environmental chemistry. It draws on the author's extensive experience in writing books in related areas of environmental chemistry, general chemistry, toxicological chemistry, hazardous waste chemistry, and chemical analysis.
Topics include an overview of basic chemistry; matter and the basis of its physical nature and behavior; organic chemistry; biological chemistry; the chemistry of water, soil, and air; industrial chemistry; toxicological chemistry as it pertains to occupational health and human exposure to pollutants and toxicants; energy; and nuclear energy, nuclear waste, and applications of nuclear science in areas such as tracing pesticide degradation, nuclear medicine, and nuclear wastes. Analytical chemistry and analytical instrumentation as applied to environmental chemical analysis and occupational health monitoring are introduced. The book's appendices provide basic coverage of the fundamentals of mathematics and computations required for chemistry, in addition to listings of important chemicals and their properties.
