Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Brant A. Smith on March 3, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This text is a must for any practicing engineer who works with hazardous materials. Ample reference sections and thorough, well written explanations in the text make this book the first place I look for information when confronted with a problem now that I am in the "real world," but also when I was still in school.

Topics covered in the text include:
Environmental regulations (basics, list of EPA acronyms)
Environmental chemistry (structures/naming of organics,pKa's, solubility, chemical incompatibility, etc)
Chemical behavior in the environment (sorption, retardation, partioning, volatilization, henry's law, etc)
Science behind abiotic and biotic transformations (radical rxns, hydrolysis, kinetics, etc)
Toxicology (good overview)
Remedial technologies and strategies (chemical oxidation, solidification, bioremediation, etc)

Appendices have data for most contaminants of concern on topics such as:
Mean water solubility
Vapor pressure
Henry's law constant
Kow
Specific gravity
Saturation concentration in air
Slope factors and RfDs

One of the best books I own.

Format: Hardcover
As a practicing environmental engineer, I find that this book continues to be an invaluable reference source.
While the organization and text make for quick review of fundamental concepts, the appendices alone justify the purchase price.
