Aquatic Chemistry: Interfacial and Interspecies Processes


The symposium upon which this book is based was organized in honor of Werner Stumm, the founder of aquatic chemistry. A total of 21 invited papers and 30 posters were presented at this special symposium. A wide spectrum of scientists (surface chemists, soil chemists, geochemists, limnologists, and oceanographers) and engineers (environmental, civil, and chemical) attended. The symposium opened with a paper by Stumm titled "The Inner Sphere Surface Complex: A Key to Understanding Surface Reactivity", which was followed by five key talks representing five major topics of the symposium: surface chemistry, earth sciences, biology, redox and photochemistry, and engineering. This book is structured to present these five key topics.

© 1995 American Chemical Society. Many have contributed to this book. Authors, speakers, and attendees at the symposium deserve our special gratitude. Their enthusiastic support has made our task in organizing the symposium a most pleasant one. To our reviewers, we are deeply in debt. Their timely review of the chapters was crucial to the completion of the project. A grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) greatly eased the financial burden of symposium participants. For that, we thank Edward Bryan at NSF for his support and interest in this project. Throughout the preparation process, the staff of the ACS Books Department was most helpful. We wish to thank, in particular, Colleen Stamm and Rhonda Bitterli for their professional assistance.
