Analytical Techniques in Environmental Chemistry 2 focuses on the establishment of analytical techniques in the management of compounds relative to their effects on health and nature. The book stresses that these analytical techniques are essential in order to cope with the problems arising from the utilization of these compounds. The selection contains the contributions of authors who have continuously performed studies on the analysis of organic and inorganic pollutants and monitoring strategies or case histories of compounds. These pieces focus on the role of analytical chemistry in the control of compounds, particularly if the compounds are seen to pose threat to health and the environment. The text presents studies on the determination of how these compounds can become pollutants, which are emphasized by the experiments and laboratory procedures mentioned in the book. Through research on hazardous compounds in different areas, the book manages to point out the differences of how these compounds can affect the environment and health. The text then proceeds by presenting various analytical techniques that could be employed to mitigate the hazardous nature of these compounds. The book is a reliable source of information for scholars and readers who are interested in studying how to control the hazardous effects of compounds both on health and the environment.
