Environmental chemistry is a course is an introduction to chemical processes that regulate the composition of air, water, and soil. Attention is paid to understanding chemical equilibrium and kinetics of natural systems and how they are influenced by human actions. Additional topics of study include sources, effects, and remediation of pollution, green chemistry and the analysis of environmental samples.
Environmental Chemistry Laboratory
Environmental chemistry laboratory is designed to introduce students to common procedures for analyzing water, air, and soil samples. Through these analyses, students also gain familiarity with important properties that environmental chemists use to characterize such samples.
