Chemistry of Arsenic, Antimony and Bismuth

This book provides a detailed, wide ranging and up-to-date review of all aspects of the chemistry of the elements arsenic, antimony and bismuth. The chapters are written by an international team of authors each of whom is both active and expert in their particular field. The coverage includes chapters on general properties and periodicity, the elements themselves, inorganic derivatives of the elements, co-ordination and solution chemistry, organocompounds, organotransition metal compounds, environmental and medicinal aspects and analytical methods. This volume will be of particular value to graduate and postgraduate chemists and materials scientists in both industry and academia who are concerned with any aspect of the chemistry of these three elements and will also be an essential addition to the reference section of any chemistry library.

Advances in Arsenic Research

The realization during the last decade that many water supplies worldwide are affected by arsenic at concentrations above acceptable health levels has motivated research directed at understanding the occurrence, distribution, and mobilization of arsenic in the environment, and stimulated the development of new, cost-effective treatment technologies. Arsenic accumulation and migration is closely tied to its chemical speciation, which is often controlled by a complex combination of abiotic and biotic processes coupled with physical transport. This symposium volume focuses on bridging the gap between different approaches and scales of investigation and on fostering a more unified understanding of arsenic occurrence and behavior, including geological, geochemical, hydrological, microbiological, ecological, and engineering aspects of arsenic-related research. Papers in this volume highlight a variety of new research directed at understanding the sources, distribution, and mobilization of arsenic in the environment. It includes recent efforts in the development of cost effective treatment technologies and in approaches to natural attenuation and accelerated remediation methods. These topics are thematically organized into three sections in the volume, the first focusing on laboratory studies and theoretical modeling, the second on arsenic behavior and cycling in a range of field settings, and the third on studies associated with treatment and remediation technologies and methods. This book is targeted at scientists and engineers (chemists, geochemists, geologists, hydrogeologists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, chemical engineers, environmental engineers) as well as graduate students who are engaged in research on arsenic in both natural and engineered aqueous systems, and on the development of methods for arsenic treatment and removal.
