Non-chemists in environmental sciences and engineering (e.g. physicists, biologists, ecologists, geographers, soil scientists, hydrologists, meteorologists, economists, engineers) need chemical basic knowledge for understanding chemical processes in the environment. This book focuses on general and fundamental chemistry (including required physics) such as properties and bonding of matter, chemical kinetics and mechanisms, phase and chemical equilibrium, the basic features of air (gases), water (liquids) and soil (solids) and the most important substances and their reactions in the environment. Selected key environmental chemical processes are shortly characterised in the light of multi-component and multiphase chemistry. This book is also useful for chemists who are beginning work on environmental issues.

Klimawandel ist eine der größten Herausforderungen unserer Zeit. Schwerpunkt dieses integrativen Handbuchs ist die Luftchemie im Kontext des Klimasystems und seiner Veränderungen. Dieses Buch präsentiert einen problemorientierten Ansatz zur Darstellung atmosphärischer Prozesse und der möglichen Einfluss- und Änderungsfaktoren und somit auch zur Bewertung des Zustands des Klimasystems. Darüber hinaus bietet das Buch Lösungsansätze für unerwünschte Änderungen im Klimasystem.

The reception of the periodic system of elements has received little attention among scientists and historians alike. While many historians have studied Mendeleev's discovery of the periodic system, few have analyzed the ways in which the scientific community perceived and employed it. American historian of science Stephen G. Brush concluded that the periodic law had been generally accepted in the United States and Britain, and has suggested the need to extend this study to other countries. In Early Responses to the Periodic System, renowned historians of science Masanori Kaji, Helge Kragh, and G?bor Pall? present the first major comparative analysis on the reception, response, and appropriation of the periodic system of elements among different nation-states. This book examines the history of its pedagogy and popularization in scientific communities, educational sectors, and popular culture from the 1970s to the 1920s. Fifteen notable historians of science explore the impact of Mendeleev's discovery in eleven countries (and one region) central to chemical research, including Russia, Germany, the Czech lands, and Japan, one of the few nation-states outside the Western world to participate in the nineteenth-century scientific research. The collection, organized by nation-state, explores how local actors regarded the new discovery as law, classification, or theoretical interpretation. In addition to discussing the appropriation of the periodic system, the book examines meta-physical reflections of nature based on the periodic system outside the field of chemistry, and considers how far humans can push the categories of "response" and "reception." Early Responses to the Periodic System provides a compelling read for anyone with an interest in the history of chemistry and the Periodic Table of Elements.

This laboratory manual offers a broad introduction to the synthetic methods of inorganic chemistry. Solid state reactions and metallurgical processes, as well as the synthesis of coordination compounds, polyoxometallates, colloid systems and porous solids are included. With the help of over 80 selected compounds the book introduces the chemistry student to a wide range of basic preparative techniques such as synthesis between -15° and 2000 °C, reactions in the solid state, solution, melt and gas, and simple characterization methods of the products obtained.
