Environmental Chemistry, 1995 - 484 pp
Colin Baird

Designed specifically for environmental chemistry courses at the intermediate level, Bairdís Environmental Chemistry features a problem-solving approach that builds on studentís knowledge of the principles of general chemistry. It covers a wide range of environmental issues such as the greenhouse effect, variations in the ozone layer, the use of pesticides, toxic organic chemicals, and air and water pollution, encouraging students to examine and quantify the relationship between chemistry and the environment, Written from the viewpoint of a working chemist - and presenting several guest interviews with professionals in the field - it offers the most accessible, straightforward, and contemporary presentation available of environmental issues and the ways in which chemists propose to solve them.
