Chiral Pollutants: Distribution, Toxicity and Analysis by Chromatography and Capillary Electrophoresis

Front Cover
Wiley, Jul 15, 2005 - Science - 368 pages
Today, among the various chiral discrimination methods, chromatography and capillary electrophoresis techniques have become powerful tools in environmental analysis. Therefore, there is a need to describe the art of the determination of the chiral pollutants in the environmental matrices.  This book provides the complete information on the types of the chiral pollutants, their toxicities and methods of determination by chromatography and capillary electrophoresis.
