Environmental Chemistry - Nigel Bunce

Wuerz, 1991, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good.

From the cover: “This text in environmental chemistry has been written for senior undergraduates who have completed at least a full year of general chemistry, and preferably have some knowledge of organic chemistry. It presupposes knowledge of kinetics, elementary thermodynamics, and equilibria. Environmental chemistry is a broad, interdisciplinary subject, which overlaps with both industrial chemistry and with toxicology when issues of pollution are under discussion. However, the subject is more than simply pollution chemistry. Not only is the chemistry of the unpolluted environment interesting in its own right, but knowledge of the unpolluted environment is essential for understanding the polluted environment. This book was conceived for a one-semester course, and so not all topics of environmental concern could be included — of course the choice of material was inevitably influenced strongly by personal interest and preference.”
