Environmental Chemistry

Undergraduate and Graduate Classroom, Laboratory, and Local Community Learning Experiences

Elizabeth S. Roberts-Kirchhoff (Redaktør) ; Mark A. Benvenuto (Redaktør)

There is probably no more direct connection between the science of chemistry and our modern society than that encompassed in the field we now call environmental chemistry. As populations have grown, and population density in certain areas has increased dramatically, the impact of all human presence on our air, water, and soil has become pronounced. Les mer

Om boka

There is probably no more direct connection between the science of chemistry and our modern society than that encompassed in the field we now call environmental chemistry. As populations have grown, and population density in certain areas has increased dramatically, the impact of all human presence on our air, water, and soil has become pronounced. In many cases, the impact has been negative, yet every human being must leave some footprint of their time on Earth, no
matter how small. This makes it important that we examine our surroundings in some detail. This book is an impressive collection of ways that environmental chemistry is explored by both undergraduate and graduate students in independent research projects and course-based undergraduate research
experiences. Students are exploring these topics in interdisciplinary groups both within their institution and the greater community.

Om forfatteren

Elizabeth Roberts-Kirchhoff is an Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Detroit Mercy. Her research interests include the mechanism of action of cytochrome P450 enzymes; the analysis of metals in food and health supplements including kelp, clay, and protein powders; and the analysis of pesticides in water. Roberts-Kirchhoff received a B.S. in Chemistry from Texas A&M University and a Ph.D. in Biological Chemistry from the
University of Michigan. After postdoctoral research at Wayne State University and The University of Michigan, she joined the faculty at the University of Detroit Mercy in 1997.
