Contents Notes
chapter 1 The Chemical Process Design Problem -- chapter 2 Pollution and Pollutants -- chapter 3 Organic Pollutants -- chapter 4 Measuring Pollutants -- chapter 5 Stoichiometry -- chapter 6 Empirical Stoichiometry -- chapter 7 Chemical Equilibrium for Acids and Bases -- chapter 8 Precipitation Reactions -- chapter 9 Oxidation–Reduction Reactions -- chapter 10 Green Chemistry. "This book examines how chemistry, chemical processes, and transformations are used for pollution prevention and control. Pollution prevention reduces or eliminates pollution at the source, whereas pollution control involves destroying, reducing, or managing pollutants that cannot be eliminated at the source. Applications of environmental chemistry are further illustrated by nearly 150 figures, numerous example calculations, and several case studies designed to develop analytical and problem solving skills. The book presents a variety of practical applications and is unique in its integration of pollution prevention and control, as well as air, water, and solid waste management."--Provided by publisher.
