Indoor Air Pollution: Part F: The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry, cartea 4F

Editat de Peter Pluschke
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 27 sep 2004
Indoor Air Pollution has become a major topic in environmental research and health. Most people spend more than 80% of their time in buildings and are exposed to a broad range of pollutants from indoor sources such as building materials, furniture, carpets and textiles, heating and cooking, household and consumer products, etc. The volume provides a comprehensive review of the major indoor air pollutants: volatile organic compounds, biocides, indoor particles and fibres, combustion products and micro-organisms and their metabolites. Sources and sinks of air pollutants in indoor environments and their chemistry are distinctly different from ambient air pollution, even though the latter may influence indoor air quality. Adsorption and desorption processes, the pollutant source dynamics, gas phase reactions and kinetics - including the fate and final chemical destiny of chemically unstable intermediate compounds - are topics of scientific research as well as the evaluation of their sensory impact and irritation potential. Guidelines for assessing indoor pollution and a broad range of analytical methods have been recently developed and are reviewed by internationally renowned scientists. The specific characteristics of indoor air pollution in developing countries due to the widespread use of open fires for cooking, heating and lighting are analysed as well as the Chinese strategies to address the growing pollution problems by air pollution in its modern building stock.

Indoor Air Pollution has become a major topic in environmental research and health.

Sources and sinks of air pollutants in indoor environments and their chemistry are distinctly different from ambient air pollution, even though the latter may influence indoor air quality. Adsorption and desorption processes, the pollutant source dynamics, gas phase reactions and kinetics - including the fate and final chemical destiny of chemically unstable intermediate compounds - are topics of scientific research as well as the evaluation of their sensory impact and irritation potential.

Recenzii

From the reviews:
"The main focus of the book is sources, methods of detection, and measurement results for volatile organic pollutants, particulates, pesticides, and microorganisms. … The references are up-to-date, and the tables of definitions and acronyms will be very helpful to those who are not familiar with this field. Academic libraries supporting environmental programs should consider purchasing this volume … . Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students." (H.E. Pence, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (11), July, 2005)
"Indoor Air pollution is … part of the fourth of a five-volume series on environmental chemistry. … It contains a wealth of useful information and references on the latest research into indoor air quality, and will be a very valuable resource for researchers and academics working in this area. It is written in a style accessible to senior undergraduate science students. … This book is both a valuable teaching resource and an excellent introduction to research being undertaken in indoor air quality. " (Nichola Porter, Chemistry in Australia, June, 2005)
