Contents Notes
A. Vapor pressure -- B. Solubility and activity coefficient in water -- C. Air-water partitioning: the Henry's Law constant -- D. Organic solvent-water partitioning; bioconcentration -- E. Organic acids and bases: acidity constant and partitioning behavior -- F. Physical-chemical properties and equilibrium partitioning -- additional problems -- G. Diffusion -- H. The gas-liquid interface: air-water exchange -- J. Sorption: solid-aqueous solution exchange -- K. Chemical transformation reactions -- L. Photochemical transformation reactions -- M. Biological transformation reactions -- N. Organic compounds in ponds and lakes -- case studies [One-box models without sediment-water exchange -- Two-box models without sediment-water exchange -- Sediment-water interaction] -- O. Organic compounds in rivers [Transport, mixing, and reactions {Introduction -- Transport by the mean flow -- Mean flow and chemical transformation -- Mean flow and air-water exchange -- Vertical mixing by turbulence -- Lateral mixing by turbulence -- Longitudinal mixing by dispersion -- Sedimentation -- Sediment-water interaction -- All things considered: the reduction of total -- Load and maximum concentration} -- Case studies] -- P. Organic compounds in porous media [Transport, mixing, and reaction {Introduction -- Transport by the mean flow -- Longitudinal dispersion -- Advection versus dispersion -- Effect of sorption -- Effect of transformation processes -- The role of colloids in pollutant transport -- Models and reality} -- Case studies]. As the perfect complement to the highly acclaimed Environmental Organic Chemistry, this companion volume enriches the textbook with illustrative examples, applications, practical problems, and case studies. Expanded to include treatment of groundwater systems, rivers, and porous media, this work may also serve as a valuable stand-alone text/reference. Keyed to related topics in Environmental Organic Chemistry, the support material provided in this book includes: * Challenging problem sets * Illustrative calculations that clarify the theoretical discussions in the text * Case studies dealing with the integrative modeling of organic compounds in various aquatic systems * Coverage of the basic concepts of modeling * A review of current literature * Meticulous cross-referencing to the equations, tables, and figures of Environmental Organic Chemistry Environmental Organic Chemistry: Illustrative Examples, Problems, and Case Studies brings together theory and practice, while developing problem-solving skills and the critical use of sophisticated models-a valuable supplement to an outstanding text.
