Environmental Chemistry: Microscale Laboratory Experiments
Ibanez, J.G., Hernandez-Esparza, M., Doria-Serrano, C., Fregoso-Infante, A., Singh, M.M.
The book is an experimental companion to Environmental Chemistry: Fundamentals.
It contains an array of
environmental chemistry experiments that can be readily performed at the microscale level. Ideas for additional
open-ended projects are provided for all experiments,
that represent a thorough introduction to environmental experimentation.
