Environmental Chemistry is a fast emerging discipline aiming at understanding the fate of pollutants in ecosystems and at designing novel processes that are safe for humans and ecosystems. Past pollution should be cleaned. Future pollution should be predicted and avoided. Chapters review nanotechnology for energy, detection and remediation; health risk caused by endocrine disruptors and heavy metals, and applied techniques to clean water, soil and air. Uncommon but visionnary topics include social chemistry, chiral pharmaceuticals and DDT, and geochronology of pollutants.
Dr. Eric LICHTFOUSE completed his PhD in organic geochemistry in 1989 at the University of Strasbourg. He became engaged as a soil scientist at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in 1992. His studies led to the first determination of the dynamics of soil organic molecules in maize field experiments. In 2000 he founded the European Association of Environmental Chemistry and in 2003 the Journal Environmental Chemistry Letters. He has co-edited the book Environmental Chemistry. He is working in Dijon for the INRA Department of Environment and Agronomy as Editor-in-Chief of the journal Agronomy for Sustainable Development. He is teaching scientific writing.Dr. More...
