- Publisher's Summary
- "UV-Visible Spectrophotometry of Water and Wastewater" is the first book dedicated to the use of UV spectrophotometry for water and wastewater quality monitoring. Using practical examples, the reader is shown how this technique can be a source of new methods of characterization and measurement. Easy and fast to run, this simple and robust analytical technique must be considered as one of the best ways to obtain a quantitative estimation of specific or aggregate parameters (eg. Nitrate, TOC), and simultaneously qualitative information on the global composition of water and its variation. First electronic library of UV-spectra providing data is readily available for researchers and users. It provides a theoretical basis for further research in the field of spectra exploitation and contains helpful practical applications.
