This book is predicated upon a relatively wide perspective of environmental chemistry and makes a comprehensive approach to disseminate the information in a clear and systematic manner. The influence of environmental factors on both living and nonliving are discussed with special emphasis on human health problems like mutagenesis, teratogenesis and carcinogenesis. Energy conservation, acid rain, catalytic converters, greenhouse gases, stratospheric ozone depletion, polymers and plastics, eutrophication and noise pollution are also discussed. Graduate and postgraduate students following advanced courses in environmental science will find this book to be most useful.
