Contents Notes
"The chiral analysis of environmental pollutants is a fairly recent development and attracts scientists needing to investigate the toxicity of enantiomers. For example, approximately 25% of agrochemicals are chiral in nature, including pesticides that are applied as their racemates in agricultural and forestry activities. To predict the exact toxicity of pollutants the determination of the concentration of both enantiomers in environmental matrices is essential. Various approaches to chiral resolution have been developed for the analysis of pharmaceuticals and drugs but this is the first text to present detailed methodology on the chiral separation of pollutants.". "This book will be of interest to researchers in biology, analytical chemistry and the environment in industry, academia and governmental regulatory agencies."--BOOK JACKET.
