Fatty alcohols : anthropogenic and natural occurrence in the environment by Stephen M Mudge( )

25 editions published between 2008 and 2019 in English and held by 1,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fatty alcohols (linear alkanes> C10 with a terminal hydroxyl group) occur naturally in most organisms but are also produced as industrial chemicals from plants and petroleum for products such as detergents and cosmetics. Regardless of their origin, fatty alcohol residues eventually enter the marine environment. They are also generated in situ by freshwater and marine organisms. These long chain alcohols can be used as biomarkers due to their distinctive source allocation, although they have differential degradation rates across the range of chain lengths." "This well-illustrated book sets out the natural and synthetic pathways, sources and signatures of these compounds, along with their concentrations in the environment, their toxicity and their eco-toxicity. For the first time, environmental data are presented from many locations around the world, with the observed anthropogenic contribution to the environmental concentrations being thoroughly discussed. In consideration of the increased production of fatty alcohols, this book is an invaluable resource to researchers examining chemicals in the environment and those interested in assessing the environmental impacts of these group of chemicals."--Jacket
Methods in environmental forensics by Stephen M Mudge( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book organizes the work of leading international experts who demonstrate the most effective techniques for determining the source of environmental contaminations. The text reviews those scientific methods that have been used with success in environmental forensic investigations. This volume gives forensic chemists, investigators, and attorneys the tools needed to solve mysteries of toxic devastation and build cases that will establish the accountability of those responsible."--Jacket

Environmental forensics( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exciting book gives an overview of environmental forensics and related topics with contributions from worldwide experts, 'Environmental forensics' is a combination of analytical and environmental chemistry, which is useful in the court room context. It therefore involves field analytical studies and both data interpretation and modelling connected with the attribution of pollution events to their causes. Recent decades have seen a burgeoning of legislation designed to protect the environment and, as the costs of environmental damage and clean-up are considerable, not only are there prosecutions by regulatory agencies, but the courts are also used as a means of adjudication of civil damage claims relating to environmental causes or environmental degradation. As a result is the increasing number of prosecutions of companies who have breached regulations for environmental protection and in civil claims relating to harm caused by excessive pollutant releases to the environment. Such cases can become extremely protracted as expert witnesses provide their sometimes conflicting interpretations of environmental measurement data and their meaning. It is in this context that environmental forensics is developing as a specialism, leading to greater formalisation of investigative methods which should lead to more definitive findings and less scope for experts to disagree. Now a significant subject in its own right, at least one journal devoted to the field and a number of degree courses have sprung up. As a result of the topicality and rapid growth of the subject area, is the publication of this book - the 26th volume in the highly acclaimed Issues in Environmental Science and Technology Series. This volume contains authoritative articles by a number of the leading practitioners across the globe in the environmental forensics field and aims to cover some of the main techniques and areas to which environmental forensics are being applied. The content is comprehensive and describes a number of the key areas within environmental forensics - topics covered by the authors include: - Source identification issues - Microbial techniques - Metal contamination and methods of assigning liability - The use of isotopes to determine sources and their applications - Molecular biological methods - Hydrocarbon fingerprinting techniques - Oil chemistry and key compound identification - The emerging role of environmental forensics in groundwater pollution Additionally, the volume considers specific pollutants and long-lived pollutants of groundwater such as halocarbons which have presented particular problems and which are described in some depth, as well as the way in which chemical degradation processes can lead to compositional changes which provide valuable information. The book provides a comprehensive overview of many of the key areas of environmental forensics written by some of the leading experts in the field. It will be both of specialist use to those seeking expert insights into the field and its capabilities as well as of more general interest to those involved in both environmental analytical science and environmental law
