Environmental Organic Chemistry 2nd Edition

by René P.Schwarzenbach, Philip M. Gschwend, and Dieter M. Imboden
published by Wiley-Interscience, 2003

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 chemnicals. Long established as the discipline's authoritative texst, 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 transformation 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; Environmental Systems and Case studies the book's chapters include
