Dr. Kloepffer's main field of interest is the spectroscopy and photophysics of aromatic compounds, and the environmental assessment of chemicals.
Dr. Burkhard Wagner obtained a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Heidelberg, Germany. He completed a postdoctoral period at the California Institute of Technology with George Hammond before joining the German Federal Environmental Agency (Umweltbundesamt), where he was the long-time section head for environmental impact assessment of chemicals.
"This book is an important publication at the right time. It provides a valuable compilation of existing data and, at the same time, points out the need for more and innovative research in the field of atmospheric reactivity of organic chemicals. ... I recommend this valuable book to all users in academica, government, and industry who need information about the atmospheric fate of organic chemicals, also a teacher or students, who are looking for input data for multimedia models, or are in other ways involved in the hazard and risk assessment of chemicals. ..."
