Techniques for Measurement and Removal of Dioxins and Furans

Vaishali Shahare
December 06, 2017

This book is a well organised treatise on identification and measurement of dioxins and furan in the environment. It focuses on their source, fate, behaviour, analytical techniques for measurement, and removal/control methods. Although there are numerous publications that address this subject,...

Pollutant Studies In Marine Animals

C. S. Giam
November 29, 2017

This volume attempts to summarize the joint efforts of a group of workers who developed systems for analysing marine pollution for use with marine animals and then use these systems to monitor certain select marine populations. Approach taken is to seek pollutant-induced changes in metabolite (e.g....

H. Magdi Selim
November 22, 2017

During the last four decades, tremendous advances have been made towards the understanding of transport characteristics of contaminants in soils, solutes, and tracers in geological media. Transport & Fate of Chemicals in Soils: Principles & Applications offers a comprehensive treatment of...

Multiresidue Methods for the Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Food

Horacio Heinzen, Leo M.L. Nollet, Amadeo R. Fernandez-Alba
October 18, 2017

In the last decades the public concern on the pesticide residues content in foods have been steadily rising. The global development of food trade implies that aliments from everywhere in the world can reach the consumer`s table. Therefore, the identification of agricultural practices that employ...

Chemical Processes for Pollution Prevention and Control

Paul Mac Berthouex, Linfield C. Brown
October 09, 2017

This book examines how chemistry, chemical processes, and transformations are used for pollution prevention and control. Pollution prevention reduces or eliminates pollution at the source, whereas pollution control involves destroying, reducing, or managing pollutants that cannot be eliminated at...
