This valuable new book examines the sources, fate, transport, and health effects of aluminum in aquatic and terrestrial environments. Concisely written by leading experts, Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology of Aluminum bridges numerous scientific disciplines that are conducting research on this once-believed innocuous element.
Included in this comprehensive publication are: the latest advances in the study of aluminum in the environment; toxicity research-aquatic and terrestrial biota; neurotoxicity and possible links to Alzheimer's disease; different forms of aluminum in soils and soil water; coordination chemistry; specification and analytical methods; mobilization into subsurface waters as a result of acidic deposition; aluminum chemistry in soils and plant toxicity; effects in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems; and aluminum research in drinking and ground water. This is an ACS Environmental Chemistry Division book.
