Colin Bairdís Environmental Chemistry presents the most balanced coverage of the environmental chemistry of natural systems on the market, and is the only text available to successfully target an audience with only general chemistry as a pre-requisite. With the addition of new co-author, Michael Cann from the University of Scranton, the new Third Edition becomes the first in the field to incorporate green chemistry into every chapter.
