By Colin Baird, Michael Cann

Colin Baird and Michael Cann's acclaimed Environmental Chemistry is helping scholars discover the chemical methods and houses underlying environmental matters they listen approximately on a daily basis - weather swap, toxins, biofuels, sustainability and extra. Like no different textbook of its sort, it makes obtainable the various methods chemists are tackling basic environmental difficulties - together with these for which the chemical itself is a resource. With up to date, balanced, and authoritative assurance of soil, water, and air chemistry, the recent variation back makes a speciality of the environmental affects of chemical construction and experimentation, supplying extra "green chemistry" sections and new case experiences. Updates comprise: * extended insurance of power creation (especially biofuels), the new release and disposal of CO2, and cutting edge how you can strive against weather swap. * elevated foreign assurance to provide all scholars a greater point of view on environmental difficulties and ideas all over the world - for instance, there's elevated assurance of gaseous and particulate pollution and CO2 emissions and air caliber criteria in numerous nations, either constructed and constructing ones. * up to date eco-friendly Chemistry situations, together with new circumstances at the improvement of bio-based toners; recycling carbon dioxide; a non-volatile, reactive coalescent for the aid of VOCs in latex paints; bio-based liquid fuels and chemical substances; and spinetoram, an development on a eco-friendly pesticide. * An task has been inserted into every one bankruptcy - those net- or library-based mini-projects might be assigned to person scholars or to a gaggle of them to complete and document on. * extra schematic diagrams were further to advertise pupil comprehension of the extra advanced chemistry and attract quite a few studying kinds. * Marginal notes - to complement the most textual content with extra fascinating fabric, and to point which evaluation Questions are appropriate to the fabric handy.

Atom economy focuses our attention on Green Chemistry Principle 2 by asking the question: How many of the atoms of the reactants are incorporated into the final desired product and how many are wasted? As we will see in our discussion of the synthesis of ibuprofen, when chemists synthesize a compound, not all the atoms of the reactants are utilized in the desired product. Many of these atoms may end up in unwanted products (by-products), which are in many instances considered waste. These waste by-products may be toxic and can cause considerable environmental damage if not disposed of properly.

We then turn to ground-level air pollution, which by contrast is primarily a local or regional environmental problem. In Part II we return to global problems— namely, the climate change brought about by rising concentrations of greenhouse gases, and the role of energy production and use—problems with which our global society currently is wrestling and which will require a myriad of approaches to resolve. In all cases, we will concentrate our attention on sustainable solutions, and how a knowledge of environmental chemistry is necessary to devise them.
