The field of environmental chemistry has evolved significantly since the publication of the first
edition of Environmental Chemistry. During this time, the first Nobel Prize for environmen-
tal chemistry was awarded and the field’s focus has shifted from pollution and its effects to its
current emphasis on sustainability. These updated classics combine the latest information in
the field with environmental chemist Stanley Manahan’s renowned expertise.

New in the Ninth Edition:


• Revised discussion of sustainability
and environmental science
• Updates information on chemical
fate and transport, cycles of matter
• Examination of the connection
between environmental chemistry
and green chemistry
• Coverage of transgenic crops
• Discussion of the role of energy in
sustainability
• Potential use of toxic substances in
terrorist attacks

New in the Third Edition:


• Increased emphasis on the applied
aspects of environmental chemistry
• Hot topics such as global warming
and biomass energy
• Discussion of the role of water in the
environment and as a green,
renewable resource
• Revised discussion of the protective
role of the atmosphere
• Integration of green chemistry and
sustainability concepts throughout
