I am also a chemistry student and I found the book to be rather easy, but that is because the text is very clearly written with good presentation and concise wording. It is certainly a good place to start in trying to understand an environmental problem, especially if the readers background in chemistry is only on a general and limited organic level.

Environmetal chemistry is a very helpful book for studensts in environmental chemistry studies. But as a pure chemistry student i find some parts of the book too easy, even boring at times, specially the chapters on organic environmental chemistry.On the other hand the chapters on physical environmental chemistry are very good and contain challenging problems.

This text was required for a Water and Wastewater chemistry class, but the information contained in it, far surpasses what was needed for class. I kept this book as I can see myself using it again in the future.

Format: Hardcover
I'm in grad school, and this was required for a course of the same title. I usually don't read the textbooks for my classes after the first week of school, but I find myself still reading this one for fun a year later. It's just chemistry applied in interesting ways...for example, you learn how to determine the concentration of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons formed when different meats are smoked. Or the variety of chemicals in cigarette smoke. The book seems to be biased towards organic chemistry in parts, but it's basic o-chem. You'll also learn a lot about topics ranging from combustive rivers (yeah, you read that right), to catalytic destruction of the Ozone layer. It's a good textbook for a class, but it's also a good reference book for scientists, or even a fun read for the nerds out there.

I took a web-based environmental chem course, and this book was used in lieu of lectures. The author does an outstanding job of presentation and the text is very well-organized. Includes a lot of current information. The problems within the text are very challenging and reflect real world issues (i.e., PCB concentrations in the Great Lakes) My only criticism is that the chapters are sometimes overly long. Other than that, this is one of the best E-chem texts I've come up against, and I certainly learned more from it than I would have from listening to a prof lecturing for a term. Recommended highly!

I am no Chemist. I actually bought this book for my Russian friend from Moscow that I will meet up with this summer. I must admit. One of my books I bought went to the wrong address, so I bought this book from this seller. This book look so new and smelt so new!! I will have to disgard the other book from the other seller, and keep this book! The book came quickly, the seller was very kind. This book is new and everything is intact. I am sure my friend will be very happy!
