chlorinated compounds Books

  • Chlorinated Paraffins

    Chlorinated paraffins are one of the last classes of chlorinated compounds that are still being produced worldwide and used in high quantities in many applications. They are particularly used in cutting oils in the metal industry, but also as lubricants, plasticizers, flame retardants and as additives in adhesives, rubber, paints and sealants. ...

  • Bioremediation of Recalcitrant Compounds

    This authoritative text addresses the latest in bioremediation technologies for three difficult-to-treat contaminant groups: chlorinated solvents, PCBs, and PAHs - one of the most complex and expensive areas of applied remediation ...

  • Chlorinated Organic Micropollutants

    Chlorinated Organic Micropollutants addresses the sources, environmental cycles, uptake, consequences and control of many of the more important chlorinated organic micropollutants, including PCBs, PCDDs, PCDFs and various chlorinated pesticides, all of which have given widespread cause for concern in relation to their environmental persistence and ...

  • Chlorination/Dechlorination Handbook

    This all-inclusive book of chlorine-based chemicals is designed to help the wastewater professional apply the science of disinfection using the most up-to-date practices to ensure safety and control odors. This book is broken into sections that discuss the chemistry of chlorine compounds, handling and use of the chemicals, regulations that govern ...

  • Reactive Halogen Compounds in the Atmosphere

    Scientific evidence clearly shows that chlorine and bromine compounds, such as CFCs, released into the atmosphere are responsible for continuous and progressive global ozone losses superimposed by dramatic seasonal ozone depletions first observed over Antarctica, now occurring over Arctic regions as well. Today substitutes are produced and ...

  • Natural Production of Organohalogen Compounds

    This book summarizes the state-of-the-art knowledge on naturally occurring organohalogens, of which more than 3700 are documented. The chapters cover all aspects of this field, including the structural diversity and sources of organohalogens, the mechanisms for their formation and biodegradation, the clinical use of dichloroacetate, and the ...

  • New Types of Persistent Halogenated Compounds

    The book gives an overview of properties and research methods of new persistent organic chlorine and bromine compounds which have been observed as potential environmental hazards especially as bioaccumulated xenobiotics, but intensively studied only recently. Sources from product uses, industrial processes, wastes, emissions or metabolic ...

  • Handbook on Biodegradation and Biological Treatment of Hazardous Organic Compounds

    The removal of chemical pollutants in biological treatment systems and during bioremediation activities is dependent on the capacity of microorganisms to degrade synthetic chemicals. This book presents, for more than 100 synthetic compounds, an overview of the biodegradation processes and pathways that yield detoxification and mineralisation. ...

  • Naturally-Produced Organohalogens

    Should the production and use of chlorine and all chlorinated organic compounds be halted, in view of their adverse effects on the environment and human health? Those in favour argue that certain chlorinated compounds (PCBs, DDT, CFCs, etc.) have large negative environmental effects. The use of chlorine in disinfectants leads to the ...

  • Environmental Forensics - Proceedings of the 211 INEF Conference

    This publication includes peer-reviewed manuscripts from the 2011 International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) Conference held at St. John's College in Cambridge, UK. INEF is an organization founded by environmental forensic scientists for the express purpose of sharing and disseminating environmental forensic information to the ...

  • Guidance Manual for the Minimisation of NDMA and other Nitrosamines in Drinking and Recycled Water

    N‐nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is a nitrogen‐containing organic compound that has known carcinogenic properties. NDMA has been a health concern for some industries for a number of years as it is used in rubber formulations, as a fire retardant, antioxidant, additive for lubricants and softener of copolymers; it is also a degradation product of ...

  • Dehalogenation

    Halogenated organic compounds constitute one of the largest groups of environmental chemicals. The industrial production of new halogenated organic compounds has increased throughout the last century and these compounds are integral to a variety of industrial applications. Although organohalide compounds are typically considered to be ...

  • Gas-Phase Combustion Chemistry

    This book supersedes Gardiner's 1984 'Combustion Chemistry.' It is an updated, comprehensive coverage of the aspects of combustion chemistry that are relevant to gas-phase combustion of hydrocarbons. It includes an extended discussion of air pollutant chemistry and aspects of combustion. The book newly reviews elementary reactions of nitrogen, ...

  • Pollutants from Combustion Formation and Impact on Atmospheric Chemistry

    The preservation of the environment is of increasing concern at all scales, from individual countries through continents to the entire planet. Combustion is known to contribute substantially to damage to the atmosphere and therefore this book reviews current knowledge of the mechanisms by which the main pollutants are formed in combustion ...

  • Multiple Stressor Effects in Relation to Declining Amphibian Population

    Original research discusses the protocols and approaches to studying the effects of multiple environmental stressors on amphibian populations and gives new perspectives on this complicated subject. This new publication integrates a variety of stressors that can act in concert and may ultimately cause a decline in amphibian populations. Sixteen ...

  • Vinyl Chloride

    Evaluates the risks to human health and the environment posed by exposure to vinyl chloride, a colourless, flammable gas manufactured almost exclusively for use in the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC is used to produce plastic materials having wide applications in the building sector, packaging, electrical appliances, medical care, ...
