The Yaws Handbook of Properties for Environmental and Green Engineering
- Carl L. Yaws, Professor of Chemical Engineering (retired) at Lamar University, Beaumont, TX
Chapters involve octanol-water partition coefficient, a significant instrument of control in ascertaining the environmental fate of substances; soil sorption coefficient, an important property in determining the fate and transport of chemicals in soils and sediments; and the threshold limit value and permissible exposure limit, which was established by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and is significant for meeting governmental regulations.
Providing over 4,000 hydrocarbons and chemicals, this well-balanced handbook greatly exceeds the coverage that other chemical and environmental books render.
