Environmental chemistry

Environmental chemistry studies the sources and emission processes of anthropogenic substances, their distribution in the environment and society, conversion reactions, purification techniques and connections to effects (on both the environment and human beings). The field covers both applied issues and basic science, including method development in the lab and in the field. Environmental chemistry has strong links to, e.g., biology, geology, medicine and the engineering sciences.
