Preface Environmental science is a well-established discipline, with a plethora of specialized areas of studies on the four traditional spheres of the environment atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. To get a clear and pollution free environment, it is necessary to understand the environmental impact and proper planning to check the pollution and enforce different laws to get a maintainable environment. The Textbook of Environmental Chemistry is designed to provide fundamental knowledge of the principles related to the environment and its chemistry, so as to meet the challenging requirements of students as well as teachers in environmental sciences, environmental chemistry, and environmental studies at graduate, postgraduate, polytechnic, and engineering levels of all Indian universities. Students and professors of engineering and general science may also find this book useful as a reference or a textbook. This book comprises twenty chapters, in a logical sequence.

The book starts with introductory chapters that deal basic concepts of environmental chemistry and general basic chemistry, including environmental science, inorganic, physical, organic, chemical reactions, and mechanisms. In this book, water, air, soil, and noise pollution have been described in detail. Main emphasis has been given to the origin of various pollutants, the fate of the pollutants in different environments, their effects, and the methods available to control the pollution. A unique feature of this book is the description on the new and current fields of environment Green chemistry, Environmental biotechnology, and Polymers for environment. These new concepts are very important in environmental science, and have been well defined in this book. It details on the environmental impact, planning and laws.
