Organic Pollutants in the Water Cycle: Properties, Occurrence, Analysis and Environmental Relevance of Polar Compounds (352760863X) cover image
This first in-depth and comprehensive reference on the most pertinent polar contaminant classes and their behavior in the whole water cycle includes, among others, industrial chemicals, consumer products, polar herbicides and pharmaceuticals. All chapters are uniformly structured, covering properties, pollution sources, occurrence in wastewater, surface water, and groundwater as well as water treatment aspects, while ecotoxicological and assessment aspects are also covered. Among the authors are leading experts in their relevant fields, many of whom provide here groundbreaking research results.
The result is an up-to-date information source for researchers and professionals working in water quality monitoring, water supply, or wastewater treatment, as well as environmental and water chemists, geochemists, ecologists, chemists and engineers.

"Das Buch ist optisch sehr ansprechend, die Gliederung ist klar und nachvollziehbar, die Sprache ist verständlich und das Ziel präzise umgesetzt. Insofern stellt dieses Buch eine wertvolle Hilfe für all jene dar, die sich einen Überblick über das Vorkommen polarer organischer Schadstoffe in ausgesuchten Kompartimenten des Wasserkreislaufs verschaffen wollen. Sehr nützlich ist hierfür auch die umfangreiche zitierte Literatur, die neben den Arbeiten der Autoren auf weitere Veröffentlichungen verweist." Grundwasser

"Dieses Fachbuch ist wegen seiner umfassenden Behandlung der einzelnen Schadstoffgruppen für eine breite Leserschaft interessant und möchte insbesondere das Wissen über polare Schadstoffe vermehren, aber auch wesentlich zum Bewusstsein über die Probleme, die durch polare Schadstoffe entstehen können, beitragen."
