About the Author

Gary W. vanLoon, Department of Chemistry, Queen's University, Canada. Stephen J. Duffy, Department of Chemistry, Mount Allison University, Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada


It builds knowledge from the fundamentals of the different disciplines of chemistry, with special emphasis on important concepts from physical, organic and inorganic chemistry. It could be of use to any student of experimental sciences, or even technology, seeking to get a basic knowledge of the subject, but it is especially recommendable to chemistry students who are in the final stage of their degrees. Reviews, The Higher Education Academy UK Physical Sciences Centre
What makes this book outstanding is its blending of both qualitative and quantitative discussion, illustration, data, examples, and problems. As such, it sets the stage for the rigorous undergraduate study of environmental chemistry by providing a balanced and thorough framework of issues environmental chemists investigate. Environmental Chemistry by vanLoon and Duffy is outstanding, will serve as a great foundation for an undergraduate environmental chemistry course, and is a book that both instructors and students are sure to keep on their bookshelves long after they complete the course. * Journal of Chemical Education, 2012 *
From the earth's atmosphere to the aquatic systems of the sea, this book is indispensable for anyone interested in environmental chemistry. * Georgiana Gibson-Daw, student, University of East Anglia *
