Perfluoroalkyl Substances in the Environment: Theory, Practice, and Innovation

1st Edition

David M. Kempisty, Yun Xing, LeeAnn Racz
July 30, 2018

Perfluoroalkyl substances are compounds that have been around since the 1950s. Only recently has their adverse human health and ecological consequences become known. There are books that either investigate the chemistry or explore the toxicity of these compounds. This is the only book that will...

Sonochemistry: An Emerging Green Technology

1st Edition

Suresh C. Ameta, Rakshit Ameta, Garima Ameta
July 24, 2018

Traditionally heat and light are thought as energy sources to drive a particular chemical reaction, but now ultrasound is a promising energy source for this purpose. The collapse of a bubble generates a wide range of high temperatures and pressures, and therefore, use of ultrasound has a...
