Thermodynamics, Solubility and Environmental Issues
Trevor M. Letcher (ed.)
Elsevier, 2007
[ISBN-13: 978-0-444-52707-3; ISBN-10: 0-444-52707-9]

Environmental problems are becoming an important aspect of our lives as industries grow apace with populations throughout the world. Thermodynamics, Solubility and Environmental Issues highlights some of the problems and shows how chemistry can help to reduce them. The unifying theme is solubility—the most basic and important of thermodynamic properties. This informative book looks at the importance and applications of solubility and thermodynamics, in understanding and in reducing chemical pollution in the environment.

Written by experts in their respective fields, the book represents the latest findings in this very important and broad area. A collection of 25 chapters cover a wide range of topics, including mining, polymer manufacture and applications, radioactive wastes, industries in general, agro-chemicals, soil pollution and biology, together with the basic theory of, and recent developments in, the modeling of environmental pollutants. This reference is suitable for consultants, industrial/local authority scientists, researchers, and graduate and post-graduate students.
