Transport and transformation processes as well as physical-chemical properties are key for determining the exposure and effects of various chemicals to humans and other organisms.
The Handbook of Physical-Chemical Properties and Environmental Fate for Organic Chemicals, Second Edition on CD-ROM brings together all four volumes of the recently published print edition into a user-friendly and fully searchable digital reference.
The handbook presents environmentally relevant physical-chemical property data pertaining to numerous groups of chemical substances, culled from peer-reviewed journals and other valuable sources on over 1200 chemicals. It also provides new data on the temperature dependence of selected physical-chemical properties, allowing scientists and engineers to perform better chemical assessments for climatic conditions outside the most commonly reported 20-25-degree range.

CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
Use certain CRC Press medical books to get your CPD points up for revalidation. We provide a free online form to document your learning and a certificate for your records.
