This book examines the occurrence, toxicity, analysis and typical concentrations of organometallic compounds in various environmental samples. These include aqueous and effluent, crop and plant, soil and sediments, atmospheric and living organisms in a detailed and systematic manner. A knowledge of the chemical structure and concentration of organometallic compounds throughout the ecosystem is important in working out the pathways and mechanisms by which metals distribute themselves throughout the environment. The principal elements discussed are mercury, lead, tin and arsenic. Other organometallic compounds, including cadmium, antimony, selenium, germanium, manganese, copper and nickel, which occur in the environment less frequently and at lower concentrations are also discussed. Contents * Introduction * Concentrations of Organometallic Compounds in the Ecosystems * Toxic Effects of Organometallic Compounds * Toxicity Testing * Bioaccumulation Processes * Analysis of Organometallic Compounds in the Environment Occurrence and Analysis of Organometallic Compounds in the Environment is essential reading for all organometallic and analytical chemists, environmentalists, and toxicologists working in the field.

Since its introduction into the armoury of the analytical chemist approximately two decades ago the technique of gas chroma tography has found very extensive applications in the analysis of most types of organic compounds. One of the few remaining limitations of the technique when applied to such compounds, namely the analysis of very highly boiling and or thermally unstable substances, has been overcome in many instances by the introduction of techniques such as silation for the conversion of sample components to lower boiling or more stable substances which can be gas chromatographed at reasonably low temperatures. All of this has been extensively dealt with in many books published during recent years dealing with the theory and practice of applying gas chromatography to the analysis and preparative separation of organic compounds. In parallel with these developments there has occurred, particu larly over the past decade, a growing interest in the application of gas chromatography to the analysis of organometallic compounds. Indeed, for many types of organometallic compounds, gas chromatography is the analytical method of choice particularly, as so often happens, when the sample is a mixture. To the author's knowledge no complete review exists of the published work in this very interesting new field; a situation it is hoped the present volume will rectify.

The increasing awareness of the effects of pollutants in the eco-system and on the development of suitable methods of analysis has stimulated a lot of research recently. This volume comprehensively discusses the range of methods available for the analysis and determination of organic compounds in soils, river and marine sediments and industrial sludges. A review is provided of the instrumentation used in soil and sediment laboratories and an indication of the types of organics that can be determined by each technique. Subsequent chapters discuss the analysis of various types of organics in a logical and systematic manner. Guidance is provided on the applicability of techniques in certain environments, the advantages and disadvantages of using one method over another, likely interference, the sensitivity of particular techniques, and detection limits. The work will be of interest to agricultural chemists, agriculturists concerned with ways in which organic chemicals used in crop or soil treatment permeate the ecosystem and to biologists and scientists involved in fish, plant and insect life. Toxicologists, public health workers, oceanographers, and environmentalists will also find the book beneficial.
