Interactions of Nanomaterials with Emerging Environmental Contaminants

Emerging environmental contaminants are newly identified or previously unrecognized pollutants, which primarily include human and veterinary pharmaceuticals and personal-care products, surfactants, plasticizers, flame retardants, metals and metalloids, various industrial additives, pesticides, and pesticide metabolites. The use of novel nanomaterials with unique characteristics has been demonstrated to increase the removal efficiency...

High Throughput Analysis for Food Safety

This book focuses on high-throughput analyses for food safety. Because of the contributors domestic and international expertise from industry and government the book appeals to a wider audience. It includes the latest development in rapid screening, with a particular emphasis on the growing use and applicability of a variety of stand-alone mass spectrometry methods as well as using mass spectrometry in hyphenated techniques such as g...

Molecules That Amaze Us

"This new book is by two knowledgeable and expert popularizers of chemistry and deals exclusively with molecules and compounds rather than with the simpler atoms and elements. It is based on the very successful ‘Molecule of the Month’ website that was begun by Paul May fifteen years ago and to which his co-author Simon Cotton has been a frequent contributor. … The authors … strike an excellent balance between introducing the novice t...

Metodos Normalizados Para Analisis de Aguas Potables y Residuales

No podría ser más oportuna esta edición en español. La creciente complejidad de los análisis para determinar microcontaminantes, especialmente orgánicos, y la aplicación de las Directivas Comunitarias, en su versión española, obliga aún más, si cabe, a un rigor en la analítica que sólo podrá conseguirse si se siguen métodos

Beyond the Molecular Frontier

  Chemistry and chemical engineering have changed significantly in the last decade. They have broadened their scopeâ€"into biology, nanotechnology, materials science, computation, and advanced methods of process systems engineering and controlâ€"so much that the programs in most chemistry and chemical engineering departments now barely resemble the classical notion of chemistry. Beyond the Molecular Frontier brings together rese...

Environmental Impact of Polymers

This text addresses the common negative perception of polymer materials on the environment with a thorough analysis of what really occurs when industry and academia collaborate to find environmental solutions. The book examines the environmental and social effects of polymer materials and explains methods of quantifying environmental performance. With an emphasis on the importance of education, the authors stress the importance of aw...
