Chemistry of Ozone in Water and Wastewater Treatment - From Basic Principles to Applications

by IWA Publishing

Even though ozone has been applied for a long time for disinfection and oxidation in water treatment, there is lack of critical information related to transformation of organic compounds. This has become more important in recent years, because there is considerable concern about the formation of potentially harmful degradation products as well as ...;

Endocrine Disrupters

by Springer

During recent decades, millions of tonnes of man-made chemicals have been produced and released into the environment, with very little safety testing. Many of these chemical substances have been found to interfere with the endocrine system and modulate its function. This book not only overviews the effects of endocrine/disrupting substances ...;

Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals

by RSC Publishing
