From Reviews of the First Edition: "This splendid, at times humorous, and reasonably priced littlebook has much to commend it to undergraduate chemists and to otherscience students." —J. G. Farmer, University of Edinburgh "Complex environmental issues are presented in simple terms tohelp readers grasp the basics and solve relevant problems."—J. Albaiges, University of Barcelona "The main strength of the book lies in its explanations of thecalculation of quantitative relationships. Each chapter includes15-20 problems that are carefully chosen from a didacticstandpoint, for which the reader can find solutions at the end."—D. Lenoir, Institute for Ecological Chemistry "What drew me to the first edition was the style – the nononsense, down-to-earth explanations and the practical examplesthat litter the text. The dry humor expressed in the footnotes isgreat and reminds me of other classic texts." —T. Clough,Lincoln University A practical approach to environmental chemistry Providing readers with the fundamentals of environmentalchemistry and a toolbox for putting them into practice, Elements ofEnvironmental Chemistry, Second Edition is a concise, accessible,and hands-on volume designed for students and professionals workingin the chemical and environmental sciences. Tutorial in style, this book fully incorporates real-worldproblems and extensive end-of-chapter problem sets to immerse thereader in the field. Chapters cover mass balance, chemicalkinetics, carbon dioxide equilibria, pesticide structures and muchmore.
