A title in the Emerging Issues in Analytical Chemistry series, Particulates Matter: Impact, Measurement, and Remediation of Airborne Pollutants provides the latest technical findings in the study of particulate matter (PM). It links these findings to awareness-raising and actionable schemes for legislated remediation and engineered solutions. Written in an engaging and informative manner, the book begins with a multi-disciplinary overview of the major sources and unique classes of PM, detection techniques, and their impact, including molecular changes resulting in health effects. It then goes one step further by proposing and examining the means to curtail and contain PM generation and ameliorate their impacts.
Particulates Matter: Impact, Measurement, and Remediation of Airborne Pollutants offers a high-quality reference guide to PM that will greatly benefit technology leaders in environmental compliance groups, epidemiologists and other public health professionals focused on pollution and health, and researchers and scholars working in pollution, climate change, and urbanization. It may also be useful to advanced undergraduate and early graduate students in environmental sciences.
- Includes a summary of the current knowledge on nanoparticles as pollutants and their negative health effects
- Provides a framework for the evolution and maturation of air pollution characterization and mitigation
- Describes an integrated set of engineered solutions that account for the concatenated relationships between technology, policy, and society necessary for long-term success
Analytical chemists and environmental chemists working in environmental health and compliance groups; energy companies and vehicle manufacturers; epidemiologists focused on pollution and health and other public health professionals; NGOs working on indoor and outdoor air pollution; think tank scholars working in pollution, climate change, and urbanization; advanced undergraduate and low level graduate courses in environmental sciences

William Vizuete is an associate professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering (ESE) in the Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA. His work focuses on air quality and climate change and endeavors to understand how pollution forms in the atmosphere, and its connection to human health. Through this research, Dr. Vizuete has increased scientific knowledge in these areas and produced new insights through air quality models, field studies, laboratory experiments, and the development of a novel in vitro technology to assess air pollution toxicity. Dr. Vizuete is also known for his groundbreaking research on the legal cannabis industry and its impact on air quality.
