With international concern increasingly focussed on environmental issues, Chemistry, Energy and the Environment emphasises the interrelationships between these three important topics and incorporates their practical and fundamental aspects. Attention is given in particular to i) energy sources, storage and conservation for the 21st century and the relationship of these to environmental concerns; ii) the importance of chemistry in the environmentally-friendly production of energy; and iii) the approach to energy and the environment in the chemistry curriculum. There is also discussion on selective topics including the environmental and health legacy of the nuclear waste issue and the development of new materials to capture solar energy. Documenting the latest research and providing overviews on specialised topics, Chemistry, Energy and the Environment will be of interest to a wide range of readers, from chemists to energy researchers, battery manufacturers to nuclear waste managers.Since the first aquot;energy crisisaquot; of 1973-1974, much has been said and written, many learned predictions have gone ... Dealing with the energy problem requires a heavy reliance on technology, chemical engineering, industry and manufacturing.
