Use of Humic Substances to Remediate Polluted Environments: From Theory to Practice

Edited by Irina V Perminova, Kirk Hatfield and Norbert Hertkorn 
Springer  2005  

Hardcover  XXVII + 506 pp.,  ISBN 9781402032509      £197.00
This is the first book aimed at development of a common language among scientists working in the field of humic research and environmental engineers specialized in remediation technologies. In pursuing this goal, the engineer is provided with sufficient information on the basics and state of the art of humic research pertinent to remediation. For the interested scientist, this text provides sufficient information on the methods, needs, and limitations of existing remediation technologies, and on the latest developments in applied humic research.

A novel approach has been adopted to categorize the interactions encountered between humics, ecotoxicants, and living organisms in a polluted environment in the context of remediation chemistry. The volume pays particular attention to in situ remediation as the most viable option for the application of humics. The content of this book will be of interest to scientists and engineers as well as environmental chemists, analytical chemists, applied microbiologists, soil scientists, geochemists and environmental engineers.
