Penn State

William D. Burgos - professor of environmental engineering, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Environmental Organic Chemistry

Author: R.P. Schwarzenbach, P.M. Gschwend and D.M. Imboden

Book Description:

My PhD dissertation research focused on environmental organic chemistry about the same time the first edition of this book was published. Having this reference really helped me to understand the material more deeply. More importantly though, the authors set the bar with respect to the quality of experimental design and data that would be required to further the science. Since coming to Penn State I have developed a graduate course in Environmental Engineering also titled "Environmental Organic Chemistry" (CE 573) where we now use the second edition of this book. I have taught CE 573 a number of times and every time it is a joy to teach and an opportunity to learn once more.
