Enveronmental Chemistry

select to open or close Course ePortfolio detail Course ePortfolio:  Enveronmental Chemistry

Course ePortfolio Description:

Environmental chemistry continues much the same organizational structure, level, and emphasis that have been developed through preceding editions it provide updated material in the rapidly developing area of environmental chemistry; also it    emphasizes several major concepts for essentials to the practice of environmental chemistry at the beginning of the new millennium.  

These include the concept of the astrosphere as a distinct sphere of the environment and the practice of industrial ecology, sometimes known as “green chemistry” as it applies to chemical science.

Chapter 1 serves as an introduction to environmental science, technology, and chemistry.

Chapter 2 defines and discusses the astrosphere, industrial ecosystems, and their relationship to environmental chemistry.

Chapters 3 through 8 deal with aquatic chemistry.

Chapters 9 through 14 discuss atmospheric chemistry.

Chapter 14 emphasizes the greatest success story of environmental chemistry to date, the study of ozone depleting chlorofluorocarbons which resulted in the first Nobel prize awarded in

environmental chemistry. It also emphasizes the greenhouse effect, which may be

the greatest of all threats to the universal environment as we know it.

Chapters 15 and 16 deal with the geosphere, the latter chapter emphasizing soil

and agricultural chemistry. Included in the discussion of agricultural chemistry is

the important and controversial new area of transgenic crops. Another area

discussed is that of conservation tillage, which makes limited use of herbicides to

grow crops with minimum soil disturbance.

Chapters 17 through 20 cover several aspects of industrial ecology and how it

relates to material and energy resources, recycling, and hazardous waste.
