Biophysical Chemistry of Fractal Structures and Processes in Environmental Systems
on Analytical and Physical Chemistry
of Environmental Systems - Vol. 11
Nicola Senesi and Kevin J. Wilkinson (Editors)
John Wiley & Sons, 2008
This book aims to provide the scientific community with a novel and valuable approach based on fractal geometry concepts on the important properties and processes of diverse environmental systems.
The interpretation of complex environmental systems using modern fractal approaches is compared and contrasted with the more classical approaches. The book will provide the fundamental knowledge necessary for solving practical environmental problems. Furthermore, it examinea how the fractal approach has been applied in order to understand the structure and reactivity of natural, environmental systems including flocs, sediments, soils, microorganisms and humic substances.

The IUPAC Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental
Systems provides a critical evaluation of the state-of-the-art on
physicochemical properties and processes in environmental systems,
as well as on the analytical techniques required to study and monitor
them. The series is aimed at promoting rigorous analysis and understanding
of physicochemical functioning of environmental and bioenvironmental
