About the Authors
  • This textbook presents the chemistry of the environment using the full strength of physical, inorganic and organic chemistry, in addition to the necessary mathematics and physics. It provides a broad yet thorough description of the environment and the environmental impact of human activity using scientific principles. It gives an accessible account while paying attention to the fundamental basis of the science, showing derivations of formulas and giving primary references and historical insight. The authors make consistent use of professionally accepted nomenclature (IUPAC and SI), allowing transparent access to the material by students and scientists from other fields. This textbook has been developed through many years of feedback from students and colleagues. It includes more than 400 online student exercises that have been class tested and refined. The book will be invaluable in environmental chemistry courses for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and professionals in chemistry and allied fields.

    • Includes over 400 online student exercises that have been class tested and refined using decades of teaching experience
    • Contains a detailed subject and author index and hundreds of references to the primary literature
    • Consistent use of professionally accepted nomenclature (IUPAC and SI)
    • Mathematical topics are covered in a separate reference chapter so students can brush up on specific topics as necessary
    • Students will need to have already taken introductory courses in physical, inorganic and organic chemistry before taking this more specialized course in environmental chemistry
