Environmental chemistry is the study of chemical processes occurring in the environment which are impacted by humankind's activities. These impacts may be felt on a local scale, through the presence of urban air pollutants or toxic substances arising from a chemical waste site, or on a global scale, through depletion of stratospheric ozone or global warming. The spread of contamination problems worldwide and their effects on the natural resources led to the evolution of the environmental chemistry. This evolution relies on the integrations of inorganic, organic, physical, and analytical chemistry to facilitate the scientifc investigations of the contamination extent and optimize remediation efforts.

Environmental chemistry is a fundamental tool for the understanding of diverse issues relevant to human health and resources preservation (natural and human-made). This special issue is directed to cover different aspects of environmental chemistry related to
• Natural and anthropogenic pollutants
• Chemical signatures of pollution sources
• Biogeochemical cycles
• Natural radioactivity
• Ecotoxicology
• Climate change
• Environmental hazards
• Risk assessment
• Medical geochemistry
• Passive samplers
• Mitigation and remediation procedures
• Geoengineering
• Nanotechnology


The authors are kindly invited to register at our paper processing system at: http://www.editorialmanager.com/openchem/ and submit their contribution using a special track established for this topical issue.
