The environmental analysis of pollution problems always involves the use of mass and energy balances to quantify the extent of pollution and its sources. This same form of analysis can be applied to ecosystems, production systems, a whole country or a region. A Systems Approach to the Environmental Analysis of Pollution Minimization identifies and describes the common factors shared by these systems. The book is organized in twelve chapters and progresses from general concepts to specific assessment methods. Chapter one is a general introduction to environmental management principles. Chapter two discusses conservation principles and their applications to environmental health. Chapters three and four explore ecosystem health, properties and analysis. Chapters five through eleven present different methods of analysis including Green Accounting, Clean Technology, Life Cycle Analysis, and Risk Assessment. Editor Sven Jorgensen closes the book with a sweeping summary. Jorgensen is a internationally published authority on the use and analysis of ecosystem models. His new book is a comprehensive guide for both students and professionals. A Systems Approach to the Environmental Analysis of Pollution Minimization is an invaluable contribution. Features

Document from the year 2018 in the subject Chemistry - Analytical Chemistry, grade: Ist, , course: Chemical Sciences, language: English, abstract: Owing to the boom of Industrialization and modernization, diverse chemical entities have found entrance into various environmental components. Thus the continous monitoring of environment has been a crucial issue to the community. In this regard, development of novel technologies have urged a surge in the recent past. Among the various approaches proposed by the researchers, supramolecular chemistry has came up with intelligent state of art molecules know as " Receptors". These can be organic or inrganic moities which secreen the diverse chemical environments through visual display. They possess immense potential to overcome the diffculties associated with exisiting bulky and tedious strategies for environmental monitoring. In this book chapter, we have tried to present an introduction to this molecular approach for sensing of various chemical species in the form of caion and anions. The basic classification of the molecular receptor approach has been introduced. This has been further exaplained via the mechanism of intraction between molecule and analyte durring the course of sensng in diverse environmental matrices.
