This is a comprehensive book in five volumes that focuses on environmental fate prediction and quantitative structure activity relationship analysis.
This book is like no other in that it tackles environmental fate calculations and QSAR Plots. Environmental partitioning and persistence are calculated in a generic "unit world" using standard fugacity models. This shows where the chemicals will go, relative concentrations, persistence, and important intermedia transport processes. From this information, a behavior profile emerges that can be presented in a standard format.
For the series of chemicals presented in the book, QSAR Plots can be prepared by plotting these properties against molecular descriptors (e.g., carbon number, chlorine number, molar number) and relationships between properties can be explored. This helps validate the data and estimates of properties for other chemicals can be made from these plots.
The chemicals included in these volumes will contain the following information:
Melting and Boiling Points
Octanol-Water Partition Coefficient
Organic Carbon-Water Partition Coefficient
Henry's Law Constant
Estimated Half-Lives in Air, Water, Soil, Sediments
Full references and methods of measurement will be given. Multiple values will be cited and a recommendation made for a "best" value.
