Page viii - ... in the area of chemical exposure. The available concentration (“environmental exposure concentration”) depends on the fate of chemical compounds in the environment and thus their distribution and reaction behaviour in the environment. One very important contribution of Environmental Chemistry to the above mentioned toxic substances laws is to develop laboratory test methods, or mathematical correlations and models that predict the environmental fate of new chemical compounds. The third purpose...

Page viii - Publisher and editor hope to keep materials of the volumes one to three up to date and to extend coverage in the subject areas by publishing further parts in the future. Plans also exist for volumes dealing with different subject matter such as analysis, chemical technology and toxicology, and readers are encouraged to offer suggestions and advice as to future editions of “The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry”.
Page ix - All five volumes series are integrated through the choice of topics and by a system of cross referencing. The outline of the Handbook is thus as follows: 1. The Natural Environment and the Biochemical Cycles, 2. Reactions and Processes, 3. Anthropogenic Compounds, 4. Air Pollution, 5. Water Pollution. Rapid...
Page vii - Environmental Chemistry is a relatively young science. Interest in this subject, however, is growing very rapidly and, although no agreement has been reached as yet about the exact content and limits of this interdisciplinary subject, there appears to be increasing interest in seeing environmental topics which are based on chemistry embodied in this subject. One of the first objectives of Environmental Chemistry must be the study of the environment and of natural chemical processes which occur in...
