about

Reaction Mechanisms in Environmental Engineering: Analysis and Predictiondescribes the principles that govern chemical reactivity, and demonstrates how these principles are used to yield more accurate predictions. Increase your accuracy in analyzing and predicting the speed of pollutant conversion in engineered systems such as water and wastewater treatment plants, or natural systems, such as lakes and aquifers receiving industrial pollution. The book includes examples from air, water, and soil. The three part treatment begins with a clear exposition of the properties of environmental and inorganic organic chemicals, followed by partitioning and sorption processes and sorption and transformation processes.

Kinetic principles are used to calculate or estimate the pollutants' half-lives. Physical-chemical properties of organic pollutants are used to estimate transformation mechanisms and rates. Emphasis is on developing an understanding of how physico-chemical and structural properties relate with the transformations of organic pollutants.



  • Offers a one stop source for analyzing and predicting the speed of organic and inorganic reaction mechanisms for air, water and soil
  • Provides the tools and methods for increased accuracy in analyzing and predicting the speed of pollutant conversion in engineered systems
  • Uses kinetic principles along with physical-chemical properties of organic pollutants to estimate transformation mechanisms and rates
