Chemistry plays a vital role in environmental protection and improvement. Over the years, environmental chemistry has emerged as a strong and dynamic science that has made enormous contributions to understanding the environment and the chemical and biochemical processes that occur in it. Environmental Chemistry: principles and recent advances provides a holistic view of the chemical processes in all segments of the environment.

 

It discusses the various pollutants present in the atmosphere, including persistent and bioaccumulative chemicals, pesticides, nanoparticles, and chiral pollutants. Advances in treatment techniques and analysis and monitoring of pollutants are the other topics covered in detail. A chapter has been dedicated for a omprehensive discussion on green chemistry. The book also talks about the Best Available Techniques (BAT) adapted by industries for Preventing and Controlling Pollution and also provides information on the application of analytical techniques, such as GC, LC, IR, and MS for analysing and measuring aqueous, solid and atmospheric samples and for monitoring environmental pollutants.
