The field of environmental chemistry has evolved significantly since the publication of the first edition of Environmental Chemistry . Throughout the book's long life, it has chronicled emerging issues such as organochloride pesticides, detergent phosphates, stratospheric ozone depletion, the banning of chlorofluorocarbons, and greenhouse warming. During this time the first Nobel Prize for environmental chemistry was awarded. Written by environmental chemist Stanley Manahan, each edition has reflected the field's shift of emphasis from pollution and its effects to its current emphasis on sustainability.What makes this book so enduring? Completely revised, this ninth edition retains the organizational structure that has made past editions so popular while updating coverage of principles, tools, and techniques to provide fundamental understanding of environmental chemistry and its applications. Rather than immediately discussing specific environmental problems, Manahan systematically develops the concept of environmental chemistry so that when specific pollutions problems are discussed, the background necessary to understand the problem has already been developed.New in the Ninth Edition:Revised discussion of sustainability and environmental science Updates information on chemical fate and transport, cycles of matter Examination of the connection between environmental chemistry and green chemistry Coverage of transgenic crops The role of energy in sustainability Potential use of toxic substances in terrorist attacksManahan emphasizes the importance of the anthrosphere ' that part of the environment made and operated by humans and their technologies. Acknowledging technology will be used to support humankind on the planet, it is important that the anthrosphere be designed and operated in a manner that is compatible with sustainability and that it interacts constructively with the other environmental spheres. With clear explanations, real-world examples, and updated questions and answers, the book emphases the concepts essential to the practice of environmental science, technology, and chemistry while introducing the newest innovations in the field.
