Chlorinated Compound Remediation Books

  • Groundwater Contamination by Solvent Stabilizers: Remediation of 1,4 Dioxane

    While tremendous progress has been made in remediating sites that have been contaminated by chlorinated solvents, stabilizers that are added to chlorinated solvents in order to improve their performance have been overlooked. This book is the first to focus on the little-known contaminant 1,4 Dioxane. Written by the authority in the field, it ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
