A comprehensive and integrated reference on biophysico-chemical reactions and processes of AOCs in various environments

Anthropogenic organic compounds (AOC) comprise a group of synthetically made organic chemicals that can breed toxicity and deteriorate an ecosystem, giving rise to various diseases-even death.

Employing a novel approach that differs from other texts covering this field, this breakthrough guide integrates discussion of key AOC fundamentals along with their role in contaminating soil, sediment, water, and air through physicochemical and biological processes. Coverage of state-of-the-art techniques helps deliver important facts on better understanding the complex interactions of AOCs with different environmental components and matrixes. Biophysico-Chemical Processes of Anthropogenic Organic Compounds in Environmental Systems :

Aids readers in understanding the outcome and fate of important organic pollutants in the environment

Covers current analytical techniques used to detect AOCs, such as NMR, FTIR, absorption spectroscopies, and biosensors

Contains chapters written by world-renowned international scientists on the subject of AOCs in the environment

Provides steps for the restoration of natural environments contaminated by AOCs

This book's unique multidisciplinary approach provides comprehensive and integrated coverage of biophysico-chemical reactions and processes of AOCs in various environments, along with associated analytical techniques. It offers a chilling reminder of the destructive power that contaminants have when interacting with the Earth's precious natural resources, and outlines restorative strategies toward implementing solutions for protecting the health of vibrant-and critical-ecosystems.
