This quantity deals a complete evaluation of complex learn within the box of environmental eco-friendly chemistry for air, soil and water pollution, and provides rising applied sciences at the chemical therapy of polluted websites and wastes. The 15 chapters, ready by means of across the world revered specialists, tackle the next issues: (1) tracking of indoor and outdoors air toxins; (2) atmospheric degradation methods and formation mechanisms of secondary pollution; (3) the environmental evaluate and affects of soils polluted through heavy metals and hydrocarbons; (4) sustainable and rising applied sciences for the chemical remedy of natural and animal wastes and wastewaters; (5) photocatalytic CO2 conversion tools for the mitigation of greenhouse results; and (6) non-conventional equipment in eco-friendly chemistry synthesis. finally, the authors define the long run views of every topic.
Given its multidisciplinary technique, combining environmental research and engineering, the e-book bargains a precious source for all researchers and scholars attracted to environmental chemistry and engineering.
