Environmental Chemistry of Explosives and Propellant by Mark Chappell

By Mark Chappell

The aim of this ebook is to offer the most recent wisdom concerning the environmental chemistry and destiny of explosive and propellant compounds. This ebook is basically in response to a symposium prepared for the 22-25 March 2009 American Chemical Society conferences entitled, "Environmental Distribution, Degradation, and Mobility of Explosive and Propellant Compounds", held in Salt Lake urban, UT. the aim of this symposium was once to compile a world physique of presidency and educational specialists to percentage information about the environmental destiny of those contaminants, with an emphasis on assessing and/or assisting the environmental sustainability of army education actions. This publication is designed to deal with 3 major issues with appreciate to explosive and propellant compounds: (i) new and precis chemistry information about the sorption, degradation (abiotic and biotic), mobility, and total environmental destiny of those compounds in soil; (ii) recommendations for statistically trustworthy detection and field-deployable distant sensing of munition parts, and (iii) applied sciences for exact remediation of MC-contaminated soils and sediments.
