A Laboratory Manual for Environmental Chemistry by R Gopalan, Amirtha Anand And R Wilgred Sugumar
Book Summary:

The present book is meant for the students who opt for a course in “Environmental Chemistry” with laboratory work as a component of the course. Spread in 72 experiments the analyses of soil, water and air have been described in a simple manner so that most of these experiments can be conducted even by the beginners in this subject. The principles involved, preparation of the reagents and the procedures are described for each experimental method.

Audience of the Book :

This manual would prove to be useful in laboratories where soil, water and air are routinely tested.

Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1.Includes appendices explaining different units, classifications, guidelines of Bureau of Indian Standards, values, formulae, etc.

2.Every experiment is discussed in the following sequence: principle, reagents, procedure and calculation.
