* Aids readers in understanding the outcome of important organic environmental pollutants in the environment * Cover the state-of-the-art analytical techniques used to detect AOCs, such as NMR, FTIR absorption spectroscopies, and biosensors * AOCs range from gasoline components (e.g.



In order to fully understand thebiophysico-chemical interactions and processes of AOCs in theenvironment, it is critical to know chemical, physical andbiological properties of AOCs and their analytical techniques. Thebook is unique because of its multidisciplinary approach as itprovides a comprehensive and integrated coverage ofbiophysico-chemical reactions and processes of AOCs in variousenvironments, associated analytical techniques, and restoration ofnatural environments contaminated by AOCs.
