Environmental Chemistry Principles And Recent Advances by P Padmaja Sudhakar, V J Koshy
Science and technology have played a major role in the advancement of society. Along with all the positive advances and developments, there have been negative effects also on the ecosystem. The buildup and accumulation of toxic substances in the air, water, and land are endangering the quality of the environment. Humans are increasingly becoming aware of the environmental damages. Chemistry plays a vital role in environmental protection and improvement. Chemists, being familiar with the chemical processes that occur in the environment, have developed means of directing chemical science towards environmental protection. Over the years, environmental chemistry has emerged as a strong and dynamic science that has made enormous contributions to understanding the environment and the chemical and biochemical processes that occur in it.
The main objective of this book is to help readers to understand the environmental issues and the underlying chemistry. This book is built up on many years of research and teaching experiences within the broad areas of analytical chemistry and environmental chemistry which helped the authors to include current research findings and developments in environmental chemistry without neglecting the basic aspects of the subject. As the readers journey through the chapters of the book they will learn the basic concepts of environmental chemistry as well as the key concepts and nuances in this rapidly developing dynamic field.
