    Book Description

    Publication Date: July 1990 | ISBN-10: 0471510297 | ISBN-13: 978-0471510291 | Edition: 1
    Aquatic Chemistry An Introduction Emphasizing Chemical Equilibria in Natural Waters Second Edition Edited by Werner Stumm and James J. Morgan This second edition of the renowned classic unites concepts, applications, and techniques with the growing amounts of data in the field. Expanded treatment is offered on steady-state and dynamic models employing mass-balance approaches and kinetic information. New chapters address such topics as: environmental aspects of aquatic chemistry; new material on organic compounds in natural water systems; the use of stable and radioactive isotopes in chemical and physical processes; the latest advances in marine chemistry; solid-solution interface; kinetic considerations of equilibria; metal-ligand interactions; and an expanded compilation of thermodynamic data for important reactions in natural water systems. 1981 (0 471-04831-3) Cloth 780 pp. (0 471-09173-1) Paper Chemical Processes in Lakes Edited by Werner Stumm This is a multidisciplinary analysis of recent research on the physical, chemical, and biological processes in aquatic systems. Coverage includes: distribution of elements and compounds in water and sediments; sedimentation and sediment accumulation of nutrients and pollutants; eurtophication and acidification; atmospheric deposition; redox-related geochemistry and sediment-water exchange of nutrients and metals; sediment dating and paleolimnology; and steady-state and dynamic models. Most chapters focus on the role of biological processes and the coupling of elemental cycles by organisms. 1985 (0 471-88261-5) 435 pp.


    Principles of Aquatic Chemistry Francois M. M. Morel Here is a quantitative treatment of the chemical principles that govern the composition of natural waters. Features include an in-depth examination of the use of conservation principles in chemical systems, a review of thermodynamic and kinetic principles applicable to aquatic systems, and a novel presentation of a systematic methodology for equilibrium calculations. Detailed coverage is provided on the topic of aquatic chemistry, following the traditional divisions of acid-base, precipitation-dissolution, coordination, redox and surface reactions. 1983 (0 471-08683-5) 446 pp.


    Editorial Reviews

    From the Publisher

    Examines features of chemical kinetics in aqueous solutions and aquatic systems in order to broaden our understanding of reaction mechanisms and specific reaction rates in natural waters and water technology. Containing essays by chemists, geochemists, oceanographers, aquatic chemists and environmental engineers, it progresses from simple concepts and laboratory studies to applications in natural water, soils and geochemical systems. Topics include kinetics as a discipline, environmental factors in controlling the rate of chemical transformations, the use of linear free energy relationships in bridging the gap between kinetics and equilibria. Chapters also discuss the role of interfaces, especially solid-water interfaces, and special attention is given to the kinetics of surface reactions. Addresses the range of topics that need to be assessed before treating the dynamics of real systems is possible.

    From the Inside Flap

    Emphasizing intellectual stimulation over extensive documentation, Aquatic Chemical Kinetics has been designed with a threefold intention: to provide an understanding of the general principles of aquatic chemistry; to discuss the application of kinetics to the exploration of naturally occurring processes; and to inspire and develop new engineering practices. With these objectives in mind, kinetics is introduced with a set of basic principles stressing the elementary reaction as a basic unit of chemical processes. Coverage then progresses from simple concepts to applications in natural water, soil, and geochemical systems. Discussion of environmental factors and rates of chemical transformations, chemical catalysis, and linear free-energy relationships follows. A treatment of the features of chemical kinetics in aqueous solutions and in the context of aquatic systems (oceans, fresh water, atmospheric water, and soil), is also included along with discussion of reaction mechanisms and specific reaction rates in natural waters and in water technology. Special attention is paid to the kinetics of surface reactions, ranging from ab initio-quantum mechanical calculations and frontier molecular orbital theories to extracellular enzymatic reactions, the adsorption of organic solutes, and redox processes. Finally, discussion is offered on weathering rates as they pertain to the kinetics of colloid chemical processes, as well as the role of surficial transport processes in geochemical and biogeochemical processes. For professionals involved in physical and inorganic chemistry, surface and colloid chemistry, aquatic chemistry, geochemistry oceanography, and chemical and environmental engineering, Aquatic Chemical Kinetics offers a solid foundation for understanding the general principles and features of chemical kinetics in aqueous solutions and in the context of aquatic systems.
